sc302 got that correct.
I have a SQL DB with address (14879) along with all the other details of the property.
I've linked SQL to ArcMAP via an OLE DB Connection (read only which is fine).
Now as mentioned, basically all I want to do is visually display address points on the GIS Map of the town and later on being able to display other details too say only properties that sold or pull data points from the DB such as "Neighborhoods" and overlay that information on the map using different colors for differ neighborhoods .
I'm the resident "tech guy so I should know this stuff" but that's like asking a brain surgeon to do heart surgery because "(s)he's also a surgeon"
Thanks sc302, I've been going back and forth with a ESRI tech person and waiting for a call but just figured i'd ask here as well.
