I have two datasets. One of all the suburbs in a particular state. The other of all the housing lots across the state. I want to add a field to the lot feature class' Attribute table which can then use some tool to automatically populate which suburb each lot falls within.

Is there a simple process to do this?


If you use a spatial join you can append the attributes of one dataset to the other. If you are trying to fill a particular field you can then just copy it across using the field calulator
