Assigning geographic attribute data to geocoded point data.

I have some data points geocoded on the map. I would like to assign a geographic location name (State, City, County, Zip, etc.) to the point data and have the name of the location appear as a separate column in the data table. Is this possible? Thanks.

Mapping Center Answer:

The Identity tool is the answer.  That requires an ArcInfo license and is the most direct solution.
