I have a line with several points along it. I am hoping to name these points numerically, from 1 to the last point along the line.

I've so far used Network Analyst to find my distance along the line for all points and given myself a way to organize it by location. What I am attempting to do here is name them "1, 2, 3, 4..." etc. from start to finish, but am not sure how.

I've gotten around this by editing the table in Excel. I sorted by the Measure field, then added sequential numbering. I then used Join to add these sequential numbers to the shapefile.
