Hello All,

I have a point layer that I would like to join to polygons, however, some of the points fall outside of the polygons.  I need to include all the points in the join and was wondering if anyone knew of a method to join the points that fall outside of the polygons to the nearest polygon feature?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated,

thanks, mike
