Overlay Analysis - Single Feature Identical to Multiple Features

Question asked by BrokenLegMike on May 25, 2015

I need to select features from 2 polygon feature classes that match identically to each other. When using the 'Select by Location' tool, I can choose a 'Spatial selection method for target layer feature(s)' method of 'are identical to the source layer'. This will iterate through and match each single feature from the Target Layer to a single feature in the Source Layer that are identical.

 

This works well, however what I am also interested in is finding if a single feature from the Target Layer is identical to multiple features from the Source layer that comprise the same outline as the single feature.

 

In the example below, you see a single polygon (left). This polygon exactly matches the outline of the second polygon (comprised of 2 features). I would like to find any single records from the Target Layer that matches the outline of any features from the Source layer, whether or not, the Source Layer is a single feature or multple features. Is this possible?
