This question already has an answer here:

I've got two shape files, one contains many point coordinates and the other vector shapes. There are many point coordinates contained within each vector shape.

I would like to perform a spatial join and create a new shapefile of the coordinates but with the attributes of the overlying vector shape.

Thanks Richard
