frustrated and no one can seem to help me ! So, I am reaching out!
The goal is this :
I have @31,000 miles of lines and @ 23,000 map grids. I need to cut the line segment at the mapgrid and have each segment add the attributes of the map grid that it is in. Ultimately, I then take that data and I know exactly how much of each type of line segment is in each mapgrid - then I can update another software program.
You would thing this would be something easy - but it has been a total nightmare.
Clip doesn't work - too much data.
Identity tool - duplicates 100,000 + rows
Intersect tool - duplicates data (just a little less then Identity tool).
and- I started out with 31,800 miles and end up with 30,700 miles … what the heck is that about?
And- if it is duplicating data and losing miles - where the heck is the data that makes up the entire 31,800 Miles?
Please help me - this really should be a simple thing and literally I have scoured my company for help - to no avail.
I am willing to try anything … It cannot be as difficult as it has been.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP !!!
