I am using ARCGIS Pro and have created a file geodatabase.   I am able to add the fields and domains I want, BUT there are a few fields that are NOT being added to the table.  The error on these fields is 000359 and says it's an "invalid field".   I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this, and if so, is there some way I can determine "why" the particular fields I am trying to add are invalid while others are good.

Thanks for any help!

Piovesan - I suspect the name of the field in not formatted correctly.  You can read about the error message here - check to see if you have a space, reserved characters, etc. for the field and correct.  Best practice is no special characters, no spaces, etc for your field name.

Can you share some more about the fields you are trying to add?  What field names have issues?  What data types for those fields, etc....
