Hi there,

I have ArcInfo 10, and all service packs installed.
But my problem is I'm trying to run a model that I've build with modelbuider. The thing is everything runs smoothly but when it comes ta execute the specified spatial join it runs forever without completing(but does not crash).
What i'm trying to do is: a spatial join of 2 polygons.
Does anyone know what the problem might be. Or has anyone had this problem.
I'm stuck and can't continue with my work.
BTW i've tried to do a "CLIP" also same thing.:confused: 
But another strange thing is that I have other models which has spatial join in them which runs without a problem.

please help
