Hello,

I am currently attempting to send an MXD file which contains two data layers: one is a vectir polygon feature class which exists on an ArcSDE, while the other is a raster image that is located on an external ArcGIS Server. I would like to know how to send the MXD to someone else in a way that would maintain the data sources, and make it so that the person that I am sending this to will not have to fix broken data sources. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Jacob.

Consider using a Map Package. This way it keeps things together that you want together and you can choose whether or not you want to include Enterprise geodatabase data. Take a look at this article:
