functionality applies only to drawing objects.
Use this dialog box to
createor specify the result table (the object data table that will
store the dissolve result field data).
You can reference an
existing object data table or define a new one. The dissolve field
can be an object data variable or any expression.
The dissolve operation
starts with a single item and "joins" all adjacent objects that
share the same value for this item. The resulting topology data
includes only the field used to perform the dissolve.
For example, you could
perform a dissolve operation on a map of zip code boundaries that
reference a county name as a data field. Dissolving the zip codes
by county results in the county boundaries as a geometry. The result
data holds the county name. In that case, the result table stores
the result field consisting of the county name.
