This is actually my first project since we lost our programmer so I stepped up. I've done some stuff in MS Office that's up.

Here's what I'd like to do. I've tried to find code to cobble together to come up with something but can't get it to work.

get "polyline layer"
      do loop through polylines
      apply 60' buffer
         Do loop through polygons in "parcel layer" that intersect buffer in Polyline layer
            copy stationid field from polyline layer table to stationid field in polygon layer table

end sub

Thanks for your patience
