Dissolve Polygon Symbology

Hey everyone,

I am trying to dissolve the symbology of a layer, so that all the individual polygons appear as one. Basically, if you took the 'Dissolve' tool and ran that to dissolve a polygon feature class, that's what I want.

I've gone through the 'Symbol Level Drawing' procedure here:

But the lines still persist.

Basically, I have a bunch of polygons that represent areas of disturbance (i.e. a forest clear cut). I have a Text field I use and populate 'Y' if it is a clear cut polygon and 'N' if it is not. I use that field as my 'Value Field' in the Help menu procedure above. I follow every step verbatim and I still get the lines. See the attached image. The gray hatching represents the clear cuts. Within that layer, you can see the the lines that separate the individual clear cut polygons.

I can't use the 'Dissolve' tool because it creates a new feature class. For various reason, I cannot use a new feature class.

If anyone can suggest something, I am all ears! :)
