Hi, I've imported a file into ArcMap 10 and the shapefile consists of polygons, but there are some minor overlaps and some small gaps. Separately, i've created a new geodatabase and topology file, but I don't know how to (or if i can) apply the rules i set in my topology file to the existing shapefile. Any ideas?
