joining a point file to a raster grid file

I have a point file that needs to be attached to a grid.  Some of the grid squares have  multiple points. I have not been able after trying many different methods to get grids with multiple points to show all the points,  I get only one.  It looks like the problem is that the grid_id is one per grid square.  So if there are 3 point in one grid they all share the id number.  I have tried multiple ways to get more points to attach to one grid id but haven't been able to get anything to work. 


I tried to join the grid to point file using the grid id field ( I created one for the point file) but when I join I get no matches ??? yet when I perform the join using the point file and attach the grid it works....but I end up with a point join and I need it to be a polygon join.


I was thinking that xtools pro might have a tool that will allow joining points files with polygon files.


Any ideas ???
