I have a polygon shapefile containing 50 features. I have another list where those 50 features are listed with how many number of points need to be created within those polygon. Suppose I have a shapefile containing A, B, C, D polygon and an excel file like following

+-----+-----+
|  A  |  2  |
+-----+-----+
|  B  |  6  |
+-----+-----+
|  C  |  9  |
+-----+-----+
|  D  |  3  |
+-----+-----+

Is there any easiest way to create those number of points within assigned polygon?

    How do you want the Points distributed in the polygons? Random ,a Square grid, a Square grid with random starting Point etc.? – BERA Jan 25 '17 at 6:35
