I want to merge two polygon shapefiles into one without losing the attributes using ArcMap 10.1. To be exact I am creating a geological map and have some geologic formations in one shapefile and some other formations in another shapefile.
Use the Merge (Data Management) geoprocessing tool.
It should give you a merged polygon with all the attributes intact.
