I edited numeric values in the table of an existing layer on a ArcGIS Online map by editing the values through the pop-up windows. Since editing, however, I've been unable to change the layer style to show a different numeric attribute than currently displayed. Any time I attempt to change the displayed attribute, I receive the error, "The layer is not providing enough information to change the drawing style." Any suggestions for resolving this error? There are no typing errors that I can find (e.g., "," instead of ".", or letters instead of numbers). Here's the link to the map: http://arcg.is/2epbEFl

Hi Drew,

I have sent you a direct message, I think this would be best handled through a Support case.

Thanks,

Hi Rowena,

If you have access to Technical Support I suggest creating a case so we can investigate this error further and document the results.

Thank you,

Katie

Can anyone provide me with a fix for this, too?

I'm trying to create a heat map with a dataset in ArcGIS Online, but when I try and reduce the area of influence, it comes up with the error message the original poster stated at the top of this thread.

Any help very, very much appreciated.

Has this issue been resolved?  I have been attempting to do the 'FieldMaps' tutorial and keep receiving the message related to polygons.  My points and lines are set up exactly the same way and have no issue.

Same issue here following that tutorial. It's happening in the new map viewer.

I am now also receiving this same error when I try to classify a data which which was previously not classified. No access to support as it is limited to one person in my university organisation.

I am also receiving this message when I go to manipulate style of displaying city population data in a basic map.   Should I go directly to the contact person at our institution?
