How to change value attributes in a polygon fc without changing the geometry

Hi there,

I am looking for something like "route mesuring" but for polygons

I have a polygon fc and there is one atribute that changes over time. Is there any way to do it with out changing the geometry... The polygon is like a buffer over a line. I can use the line and route measuring and then make a buffer...Does someone has a better idea?

Thanks in advance,

One can normally update the attributes of a feature class without altering the geometry.  Typically this is done in an edit session.  One can also use Field Calculator outside an edit session to update values.  If you are good with Python, attributes can also be updated using a Python Script.

So I suspect there are some other factors involved in what you are trying to accomplish.  Can you elaborate more on what you are trying to achieve?  This will help GeoNet participants in providing solutions.  Include what software and version you have available.  For example, ArcGIS Desktop 10.3.
