I have two shapefiles, one being line segments (gravity sewer) and another being points (manholes). I want to be able to show to and from in the line attribute table.

Is there an easy work around to this rather than editing each line segment manually?

I currently have Arc10.2 but I am upgrading shortly.


Esri's Attribute Assistant can do this for you. You can create rules for calculations to be automatically run, including copying values from end-point features onto a line (upstream/downstream manholes onto pipes).

Look at the From Junction Field and the To Junction Field methods.

The Attribute Assistant can take a bit of setting up, but read the documentation - it's very good - and you'll find it's actually not too difficult to get up and running.
