Yesterday I posted this in the incorrect area instead of Python.  I have a file gdb with a couple thousand features, a few hundred of which have duplicate attribute values.  I want to merge these features with duplicate attribute values to become multipart lines.  Because I'm working in a FGDB I cannot use a SQL query and the Find Identical helps me identify the records, but not much else.  The source data is being created from linear referencing of SQL table data nightly, and I'll need to automate this select/merge as well.  I need a nudge in the right direction.

(I'll also need to do this to a point feature class, but I'm aware that's another set of problems with multipoint geometry.)

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks

Justin

Thanks Jayanta.  I was approaching this wrong.  I was able to use dissolve and a join to get what I needed.

Please ensure Create multipart features is checked in order to dissolve point FC to multipoint FC.
