I have a point feature class and a polygon feature class and I want to join the ID from the polygon feature class to the points within them.  For example, one polygon's ID is 100 and I want to figure out all the points that are within the 100 boundary and add that ID to the point table. 

I'm sure this is a relatively easy function so a quick note back would be appreciated.  Need more information?  Let me know. 

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

This is a classic overlay problem.  Use the Identity tool.  You need an ArcGIS license for this.  If you only have an ArcView license, use the Spatial Join tool.
