Spatial Join by common attributes

Discussion created by adamjvogt on Jul 29, 2013

I am trying to spatially join some polygons to points, but only if both the polygon and the points share a common attribute.  I have plenty of over lap between my polygons and points, but most of the over lap I want to ignore because the points/polygons do not share a common attribute.  Also, I am trying to automate this in model-builder.  I have found a youtube video and corresponding script that does something similar, but I cannot figure out how to make the script work in model-builder.
