Point distance between select groups

Question asked by geonetadmin on Mar 24, 2014

I am working on a project where I am trying to determine the distance between people and select buildings.  I geocoded the data and used the Point Distance tool to calculate the distance between people and buildings.  The issue I am having is that certain people are associated with certain buildings, so I do not need the distance between every person and every building, just the distance between a specific building and the associated people with that building.  There are over 200 buildings and 10,000 people, so I am trying to avoid creating separate files for each one to measure the distance.

Is there any way to filter (either before using Point Distance or after) so that the distances calculated are only for specific subgroups? Or is there another tool I am missing?
