  2. In the Identify Results dialog box, click the Layers drop-down arrow and click the layer in your map whose features you want to identify.
  3. Click the feature on the map.
  4. Double-click the feature in the left panel of the Identify Results dialog box.
  5. Double-click the relationship path label.
  6. The related objects are listed below the path label.

  7. Click the related object whose properties you want to explore.
If the related object that you navigate to in the Identify Results dialog box has objects related to it through other relationships, you can continue to navigate to those related objects.
