I have feature classes containing points (Events) and polygons (Sectors). I want to add a new field to the Events FC to store a field from the Sectors FC.
The Events FC would be the Target Features and the Sectors would be the Join Features, using the terminology of a Spatial Join (Toolbox > Analysis > Overlay > Spatial Join). I need to get information for points from the polygons in which the events occurred.
I could perform a Spatial Join but that results in a third FC. I prefer to add a new field to the existing Events FC. How do I perform a spatial join and add a field from the resulting join to an existing FC?
