Good day!

I have a shapefile which contains X-specific field. I want to add this X-specific field (integer) to a raster dataset. I am using ArcGIS 10. How can I do this? Thanks.

Unless the values of your 'X' tool correspond directly to your raster, you're best of converting the shapefile to a raster based on 'X' with Feature to Raster and then using Combine (from the Spatial Analyst toolbox) to combine the 'X' raster with your original dataset.
