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 ???
