Copying large datasets

I'm using ArcGIS Pro 2.7 and having a lot of trouble copying data from an attribute table that is very large.

Is there a way around this? I only need certain data columns and have tried deleting the others to reduce size of the dataset however the program stops copying after around 10 minutes and nothing pastes to the clipboard.

This attribute table is also for a merged layer, not sure if that makes a difference.

Any help on this would be great thanks!

If you want to export the feature class with desired fields, use Feature Class to Feature Class. Use the Field Map to remove the undesired fields.



If you want to export just the table with desired fields, you could use Table to Table. Use the Field Map to remove the undesired fields.

If you need to export the tabe from ArcGIS Pro for use in other Software, you can use (mentioned above) which supports csv, txt and xlsx as output. No need for clipboard copy/paste.
