Hi Folks, I'm new to this Forum thinking about buying ArcGIS but need to know if it can really help me.

I have a bunch of line features in different shapefiles.  Many are pretty much the same (roads), but some are 1:100K and some are 1:24K so they vary slightly.  One dataset has some features that the other doesn't and vice-versa.

Is there a way in ARCGIS to export a new shapefile from the two shapefiles and delete any similar features?
