Field Level Metadata

Hi all,

I'm ultimately looking to create metadata on the field level. ArcCatalog only seems to let you add metadata down to the feature class level.

I thought X-Ray for ArcCatalog was my answer, but it doesn't seem to let me change field description and load the XML back into the same geodatabase that I exported the XML from. My understanding is that I can only load an XML with new field descriptions into an empty geodatabase. I would very much like to be proven wrong here if anyone knows differently.

If X-Ray for ArcCatalog isn't the answer for this problem, does anyone know of a way to do this?

Also, I understand I can just save out an excel file with the descriptions, but I'd ultimately like this data to be stored in the geodatabase itself.

Thank you in advance,
