Shawn covers the basic mechanics here pretty quickly and well. You'd maybe like to see a Parcel report or two?
I'd probably refine the scope a bit more with a Map Query on an attached Parcels drawing, but that's just me.
It is hard find really clean parcel data from most public sources. SHP can hide a lot of geometry sins and duplicates.
Without a MAPCLEAN process on the geometry you may create some interesting parcel segment junk that can come back to haunt you.
