Assign Projection to Shapefile
This tool allows the user to create a projection file (.prj) if there is not an existing file. The projection data is written to the projection file (.prj), but no actual reprojection occurs.
A new projection file can be created and overwrite an existing projection file. This does not reproject the data but rather assumes that the data is in the new projection. It does not check if a projection file already exists.
If you need to reproject a shapefile into another shapefile, see Reproject Shapefile
