Hello everyone, I am trying to spatially join our city's "overlay districts" with our parcel file so that it will be displayed if a parcel is in an overlay district. However, some of the overlay districts are on top of each other. For example, a parcel can be in a C-1 zone and a historic preservation zone. I want both of these to show up in 2 different columns. Is there any way to do something like this? So the final result, the parcel would show that it is C-1 in one column and historic preservation in a second column, because the parcel overlaps both polygons.

Thanks in advance.
