Creating polygons using a table and feature class

Discussion created by marcus8 on Mar 23, 2011
I'm really lost on this. I need to go from an access database to create polygons. I have a general layer in Arcmap. I'm using the database to create a table, it will have the object ID for the tract that I want to create.

To simplify, I want Arcmap to go through my table, using the first column of the table to uniquely identify the tract I want to create from that layer in my map. It needs to copy the polygon from existing layer to a new layer and populate the fields of the new layer with the information in my table. Is this possible?
