I had two polyline feture classes representing the same objects that I spatially joined together to reconsile/consolidate data about. At the time I was directed to remove some features from the joined feature class because they were not of interest at that point. Subsiquently they now are and I want to bring them from one of the original layers into the joined layer. What is the best way to do this?

    Why not use the append tool? – Devdatta Tengshe Mar 18 '14 at 17:48

    Use compare tables and then select by attributes and finally append. – Aaron Mar 18 '14 at 19:58

If it's only a few features and the attribute fields are the same in both layers, it might be simplest to start an edit session on both layers and just do a copy and paste.

If there are many features or uncommon attribute fields, the Append geoprocessing tool would be more suitable.
