Hi. I am running 10.2
I built a spreadsheet with population data.
I have object_ID field, GEO_ID, County, & pop_data Fields, etc.
The names correspond.
the Polygon layer ( Counties ) has the GEO_ID and County name, shape length and area, etc.
I imported the spreadsheet, joined the polygon layer (Counties) with the population data using the GEO_ID field.
This worked, I have a joined attribute table.
I can not display the joined data.
when exporting (creating new shapefile) the exported data comes up empty.(nada)
I can remove the join, export the data and polygons are exported.
