I am new at using ArcGIS 9.3.1 and am having trouble joining data. I have a shapefile of census tract polygons and a separate file of points that are crimes in Chicago in 2010. The crime points were part of a separate Excel file that I uploaded and converted into a point shapefile.
I now am trying to see how many of the crimes occurred within each census tract but when I try to do "join" it gives me the error:
Can't create output feature class.
Why am I getting this?
Is there another way to do this?
I've tried everything I can find on the internet.
