How do I summarize a line with overlapping polygons?

Question asked by cgallipeau on Sep 1, 2016

I have 2 fc, a line and a polygon.  The polygon has overlapping features.  I want to get the total length of the line length in each poly.


I have done this in the past with non-overlapping polys by doing a spatial join to get the 'Poly ID' field into the line attribute table and then did a summarize on that and a "Sum" of the 'length' field.  However, with overlapping polys, the SJ isn't behaving right.  What suggestions are there to do this?  I can't separate each poly into a non-overlapping fc to get the SJ to run successfully.
