Polygon intersection- Preserving attributes

Discussion created by m.cain on Mar 4, 2013

I have a line of intersecting polygons. When I create the slivers from which they intersect (i.e., run Intersect on the polygon feature class), the output feature class contains 2 slivers for the same location. One has attributes form the feature to the left, while the other has attributes for features to the right. I need a way to determine which of the 2 intersection polygons contains the features to the right, or those to the left (one or the other). What would be the easiest way to do this? I had hoped that I could simply get unique intersection pieces with attributes for both polygons within the same record (different fields).

Thanks in advance.
