Problem: Joining by location produces blank values or crashes ArcMap


When performing a join by location, ArcMap crashes or the columns appended are blank, NULL, or 0.


This is a known problem with larger datasets.

Solution or Workaround

Break the layers into several smaller layers. Then, join the smaller layers.
