Hello,

 

I'm hoping for help processing this.

 

I have the 2ft contours for a city area.  These were brought in as aprox 16 tiles.

 

I need to merge these shapes.  esp so that i can then clip them to city and neighborhood boundaries.

 

Can someone help me figure out how to do this?

 

 

note: It could also be of help if there is a way to simultaneously adjust symbols and definition queries for multiple shapefiles.

 

 

Thank you for your time,

 

Regards,

Derek

Hi Derek,

Take a look at the Merge tool.

Thanks, pretty sure I tried that initially and had a random script error throw me off.

Said error is reoccurring and support is telling me they need me to repair/re-install my Internet Explorer for some reason.  I'm chasing this down currently, but will update my progress and likely thank you again later.

At times I have had issues with merge ... so what I have done in the past is make a copy of your first file ( or at least backup everything) then I used the append tool instead

I forgot to add that personally, I'd use append as I can specify the sequence.

.... Same script error for Append...

... Sigh ... I'll start a new question ...

Sounding like good advice and I thank you

Also my Merge function is completely offline for the time being

Seems to be something like this:

33792 - On some systems, running any Geoprocessing tool in ArcToolbox results in Microsoft Script Er...

... ok.. I hope that is clickable, that's the error I get, I can even find the area in the code of that file...

I'll need to ask a new question for that

I'll try Append -- Thank you,

it may also serve as a workaround

while I try to figure out why esri's software can fail

due to an issue that is either through Microsoft IE

or hasn't been properly resolved by an esri team.
