I am digitizing a map and I have sample locations and station locations. The program (ArcMap10) worked fine until recently. Now when I try to add a sample it adds a station instead. Any ideas on how to fix this is much appreciated1

take a look at the editing in ArcGIS 10 document. It sounds like you need to set the correct layer in the Create Features dialog – Stephen Lead Aug 29 '12 at 23:18

I'd suggest checking the Properties of the layer you are editing to see whether on the Fields tab that particular field has its Default set to station.

Use the 'Create Features' button on the Editor Toolbar, then select the feature class or subtype you want to work with.
