You can use
Update Column to update a column in your
Wards table with the count of the number of pupils within it. To do this fill out your
Update Column window as below:
Table to Update:
Column to Update:
NumPupils (add this to your table if necessary)
Get Value from Table:
Click the '
Join' button and set the radio button to '
where object from table...' and change the drop-down so that the pupil postcode points are within the Wards (or the Wards contain the pupil postcode points). Click OK to go back to the
Update Column window.
Click OK and you should now have a count of the number of pupils against each Ward.
You should then be able to display this in a Legend window (
Create Legend), just use the wizard to create the legend and select the correct column to label the Legend with.
