I haven't done this for a while and am having trouble combining multiple buffer zones that are overlapping? When I view my attribute table my results are incorrect because of the overlap, I have results that appear twice. How do combine the buffer zones so that I won't have this problem?

thankyou

If you use ArcGis simply merge the buffers I guess....

Dissolve <_<

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."
