Zonal Statistics

Hi there,

So I have a DEM and a line .shp file. What I want to do is obtain the mean elevation for each line segment. Relatively simple, I just used the Zonal Statistics as table tool.

However I run into a problem when I try and join these average elevation values back to the original line data. There are no spatial coordinates in the table so I can't do a spatial join and when I conduct a normal Join, the Zonal Statistics Table has not maintained the original FID values from the line .shp file.

Any ideas on how I can solve this one?
