Joining one table to many shapefiles

Question asked by lee.smith on Feb 6, 2015

I need help joining a table to many shapefiles (polygon). The table and the shapefiles have the same field (name and format) that would achieve the join. I didn't find a way to join them in one step and what I am doing right now is adding the table to ArcMap and then join each shapefile to the table, and since I have more than 300 shapefile, it is a time consuming process!

I created a personal gdb and then created the polygon shapefiles individually, and because I don't want to spend time typing all the data, I added just the field that would be the joining attribute with the table, and then imported the table to the gdb, so what is the extra step, if it is possible, should I take to make this join in one step?

I appreciate any help.
