Creating a point feature from existing attributes in a shapefile

Discussion created by amina.harat on Aug 15, 2013
Hi everyone,

I have a shapefile with the names and the addresses of 153 companies. When I open the attribute table, I can see that 19 of them have no point/no XY data, only attributes in the table (cf. attachment: the problem concerns the lines with ObjectID from 134 to 153 included)

I need to create a real point for each of these 19 companies without changing their ObjectID because they're all already part in relationship classes.

I geocoded these companies to know where they were. Now, I'm looking for a way to "bind" together the entities from the orginal shapefile with their geocoded "point" counterparts. I've been looking for a solution in the editing tools, but nothing came out... Is there any way to do such a thing?

Thanks for your help
