New to the forum, so I apologize for my bad English and if I'm being inconvenient somehow! I read answers that are similar to my question but none of the ones I found fits my case.

I have a shapefile that results from an Intersect between a polygon shp and a point shp. So my resulting shp is a point one! One of the field in my intersect resulting shp is "species_names" (let's call it shp.spcNames). And I've got a CSV table imported to my GDD that contains only 1 column with over 600 text record (let's call it tbl.spcNames).

Now, I want to create a shapefile that contains only records in which shp.spcNames is different from all tbl.spcNames. In the end I want to have a point shapefile that contains all the info from my initial intersect shapefile minus the records in which shp.spcNames are present in my table's tbl.spcNames field.

How do I do that?

    How about doing a table join between the intersect layer and the CSV. Then select all points that have NULL in the join field and export them to a new layer. – csk Apr 5 at 19:24

  • @csk I'll try that right now! – Felipe Apr 5 at 19:33
  • If it works feel free to self-answer. I don't know arc products well enough to write a good answer. – csk Apr 5 at 19:40

For all effects the logic steps suggested by @csk, seems to have worked! I still have a lot to do though. But for the purpose of the question I may consider it closed. don't know if I've got to check 'resolved' somewhere ...

  • It is legit to check your own answer as solution, do so please. – FelixIP Apr 6 at 4:05
