I just switched to Pro. I used to be able to sort an attribute table by a field, copy, and then paste them into Excel or wherever in the sorted order. Now when I sort an attribute table in Pro and then copy & paste, it pastes in order by OID. How to I copy & paste in Pro and maintain the order in which I sorted it?
Can you explain the workflow you use for this action in Pro 2.3.3, as I cannot even copy selected records from the attribute table to Excel?
I ask because I can highlight rows in the attribute table in ArcMap and then right-click on the far left column to be provided with a list of choices that include Copy Selected. If I perform the same action in Pro 2.3.3 Copy Selected in not available in the right-click drop down list.
Any word on when this really aggravating bug will be fixed? As of today, 4/30/2020 in 2.5 it is still not preserving sorts when copying into Excel... how does this type of bug even happen in the first place?
Also, when attempting to do the same sort in Excel it is not straight forward at all. Dealing with a data set right now that simply will not sort the same way as in Pro's attribute table. Never saw any issue like this in ArcMap going back to 8.3 days.
I'm not sure why the sort isn't preserved when pasting into Excel. I looked at the dev issue, and it shows as being fixed in 2.5.
I just tried:
This table is sorted on Fire_Name. When I copy/paste into Excel, it is the same order.
What is different about what you're seeing in 2.5? Can you provide more details and screenshots?
