I cannot find the Polygon Neighbors tool. I have searched for it as I usually do and I have also browsed the proximity toolset but it is not there. The other Tools, e.g. Buffer and Near are there and work fine.

Here is a screenshot: enter image description here

Can you show a screenshot? Sounds like you probably need to reinstall Arcmap if it truly is gone. Are there any other functions missing as well? (Please use the edit button below your question to update it) – Martin Jun 9 '14 at 7:39

This tool is available only since 10.1, you've indicated that you are on 10.0. ArcGIS 10.0 Help page is here.

Your option is to upgrade to 10.1 or later or find 10.0 system and custom tools that could do a similar thing without using this 10.1 tool. I bet you can do this in ArcPy even in 10.0.

Yes, that seems to be the problem. I will contact my workplace and ask for an Upgrade. Thank you! – Andreas Jun 9 '14 at 8:50
