After you connect to
an external data source, you can join it to a layer in your map
using the Data Table. (To join two data
sources, they must share a common property). You can see the results
of the join immediately.
To join the ODBC parcel data to the geospatial
- In Display Manager,
select the Parcels layer and click Table.
- At the bottom of the Data
Table, click Options Create
- In the Create A Join dialog
box, the Primary Table Initiating The Join entry reads
SDF_1:Schema1:Parcels. For Table (Or Feature Class)
To Join To, select the ODBC_1:Fdo:Assessor layer.
- For This Column From The
Left Table, select APN.
- For Matches This Column
From The Right Table, select APN (if it is not selected
Leave the other settings
with their current values.
- Click OK to display
the original and joined data in the Data Table.
- Scroll to the right to see the owner
NoteThe joined data values for the new parcel
you created with the Split command are not accurate.
The database that contains the joined data does not know about the
change to the parcel, so it cannot provide the proper new data for
it. Update the original data store independently to enter the data
for the split parcels.
