In some instances, it is useful to combine two or more fields and display the combined field attributes in a new field in ArcMap.
The instructions provided describe how to concatenate attributes from two or more fields in a table using ArcMap. In this example, the address, city, and state fields are concatenated into a new field to display full addresses.
Note: It is possible to use an existing field, but the output of this process overwrites the existing data in the field.
Note: To concatenate string fields, select text field data type. Select short or long integer field data type for number fields. Refer to: ArcGIS field data types for more information on the field data types.
Code: [Field Name] & " " & [Field Name] & " " & [Field Name]
Note: The double quotation marks (" ") add a space between the values that are being concatenated. Remove (" ") to eliminate the space between the field names.
