Spatial Join outputs not consistant

Discussion created by dena123 on Feb 7, 2013

I am trying out a spatial join for a global dataset whereby the target field has 1 polygon in a set space and the join dataset has multiple polygons within that set space (i.e. a many to one relation ship). However, when I run a many to one intersect spatial join, only some target locations with multiple join polygons associated show up in the output. Most target locations are joined with just one of the join polygons, instead of all of them.  How do I fix this so that I end up having multiple records for a single target polygon for each of the associated join fields?
