Hi, I am very new to Model Builder and need to make a model that will create a new field which basically says "yes, this point is within this boundary," or "no, this point is not within this boundary." I have used the select layer by location tool to select the points that are within my other shapefile (a polygon), and believe I need to use the "Add Field" and "Calculate Field" tools, but am stuck as to where to go from here and how to get the Yes/No text into the new field. From my understanding, the spatial join tool could also be used, however, I end up with zero results which is incorrect (possibly user error?). Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
