Hi all,

I have a shapefile with the regions boundary. I need to have a unique polygon that englobes all the regions and then I need to calculate the distance of the centroid of each region to this external boundary.

Does anyone knows how could I get this external boundary? I tried union, dissolve, aggregate but I have not been able to obtain it?

Once I have this external boundary I will just need to use the MNEAR function I guess.
