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....
