I have two separate files, one is Manholes, and the other is Sewer Lines. I have a Field in the Manholes attribute table that i created called Seg_ID. Now All of my points (manholes) are snapped onto the sewer lines. Each sewer line is label SL_1, SL_2, SL_3 etc etc... How can i get the field in the manholes file to automatically say which sewer line each point is on in the Seg_ID field?
