I am working on a town sewer system right now and have run across a bit of a problem. I have gps every manhole in the town, and then I proceeded to draw in the sewer lines snapping them to each manhole, like connecting the dots. In my attribute table for Manholes i have a column that wants the SegmentID (Sewer Line) for each manhole. I would just manually type them in but there are thousands of manholes. Is there a quick way that i can run a tool or something that will pick up which manhole is on what line and put it in that column? I don't know how to explain it better than that.
