Calculate attributes of SDE feature class using Calculate Field in model builder

Good Evening All,

Had a question I wanted to ask you all because I've had no luck finding answers else where so I figured you all my be able to help me out. I am Currently going through an infrastructure migration and trying to automate some of the work that needs to be done. I have created a model to add fields and calculate said fields in an SDE database. the model creates the field fine but when I get to calculating the field, the model fails. I know to change attributes within a SDE fc you need to enable editing (and think this may have something to do with my issue) but I cant seem to figure out how to calculate the fields after they are added. any help would be much appreciated!


Thanks in advance!

Are you familiar with Python or is modelbuilder the only option?

You could export it as a script and some kind soul here might be able to adjust the code for you. (run anything in a TEST environment first).

I'm not sure if modelbuilder has this as an option, hopefully someone more familiar with MB can chip in.

I just saw this.  Are you able to run this during an edit session?
