Hello,

 

--I have one layer with combined shapefile outlines for the top 80 (population) metropolitan areas.

--I have a second layer with the Public Use Microdata Areas (PUMAs) that are within these 80 metro areas.

 

I want to add a field to the second layer that names the metro area each PUMA is located in.  So if PUMA 1 is located in NY metro it will say NY in the new field for that PUMA.  Thanks, I've looked in a book and online and can't find a reasonable answer!!
