I am trying to merge quarter of quarter sections of polygon from PLSS into a quarter section. However, I will also assigned to correct Township/Range/Section for while merging. I know I can hand merge all of them use the Editing tool, but since I will have to do to the entire Kansas, I was thinking to write a script on it. The problem is that the Township/Range/Section field in the attribute table is in one field and I don't know how to do that when is all together.

Attached is the screen shot of the attribute table, I wanted to merge 4 polygons highlighted and still retain its info.
