Try using a spatial join. It should do what you want.

Subject: shrug-l: Mass Attribute Transfer



I thought I has seen something on this subject in the past, but cannot now find it. The situation:


The basic process is that I 1) buffer a parcel containing a point and then 2) transfer the attributes from the point to the buffer. I have thousands of points.


Is there a way to do a Mass Attribute Transfer? Or is there an easier way to go about this? (without doing each one individually)


Thanks for any suggestions.
