I'm on AGP 2.7 trying to create a Locator using the Geocoding tool "Create Locator".
But no matter what name I put into the Output Locator field (even the default one I get when I first select the primary table) I only get
ERROR 002777 The name is invalid.
I tried using only letters, various forms of lower or upper case with or without numbers but I can't find a name that the tool will accept as valid.
Any help is appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It's more of a naming convention for the GIS files. Many Geoprocessing tools may result in error if proper naming convention is not followed.
Here is a good article I found online. https://learngis.org/textbook/section-six-arcgis-file-naming-rules
Also Desktop is not an ideal directory to store your GIS Data objects. You could save on a local drive within a Data/Project Folder (Not under Users folder).
