I ve got a dgm and a point fc. For every point, I need the dgm value (height amsl) in the attribute table. I additionally have the point file from which the dgm was made. But a spatial join 12 Mio. dgm-points to app. 3 Mio. points (Method: Closest) is a quite big task. Although my machine is very powerful, I do not get a 1% progress after one hour...

So, do you have an idea how to get a dgm value into the attribute table of a point fc which intersects with the dgm?
