I'm trying to carry out an attribute join using one CSV and shapefile using the "LSOA11CD" fields as pictured below

shapefile attribute table

csv file

The join validates in ArcGIS Desktop, however I get the following error message when I try to join the two tables.

error message

The CSV contains significantly more entries than the shapefile field, however identical entries are present in each of the tables.

    Could you please describe in detail the exact process you used to create the join? – Aaron May 3 at 22:46

  • There aren't any matches shown on this attribute in your example screen shots, perhaps they just don't show here. Did you sort the tables and check that there are matches? – danak May 28 at 23:05
