ArcMap Projections Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

I am having trouble putting two different shapefiles into the same projection so they lay on top of eachother in ArcMap. I have used ArcToolbox to change the projection of both shapefiles to be the same, but they still show up as two little dots at either end of my screen. They're no where near lined up. There MUST be something I can do. I know this shouldn't be as hard as I'm making it. Is there something else I need to change? Thanks for any help!! :)

The best practice is to first define a projection to the shape files and then reproject them to the intented really works for me well that way....try ans see if it works for you too...
and hey use Arc ToolBox to define and reproject.
