Finding Line Sections closest to Points Help?

Discussion created by deedug on Jun 5, 2013
Hello can anyone please help me. We are building a new electrical line across an island, and I want to find out what sections of the line are closest to the ports for bringing equipment to the new electrical line. I have a shape file with the ports as points and a shape file with the electrical line. But how do I work this one out? Anyone please.
