Parent Line

Question asked by CarrieP on Jun 6, 2019

I have arcmap 10.5 standard license. A lot of data that is given to me is a shapefile of polylines representing power lines and shapefiles of points to represent subs/switches/fuses ect. What I do with the shapefiles is export the attributes out to create a .std for CIS and OMS. One thing that .std file has to have is the parent line information. 


Is there a way in arcmap to run a process that will tell the parent/upline of each line section. I would like to think I could do it based on x, y data since the start of a line will have the same value as the end of its 'parent' line or point.  


Any tips or guidance is appreciated!
