using arcgis 9.3.1,
I would like to calculate polyline length within polygons (they are overlapping)

with smaller file size the intersect command and tabular analysis did the trick.

the current polygon file I have has ~50,000 records, which will create too large of a file size.

I am not versed in any language (VBA, python); so I'll consider any approach you can suggest and try to make it work.
