Hi Everyone,

I am having trouble converting a shapefile of a point feature class to my GDB.  I have tried the Feature Class to Geodatabase tool, tried first using Feature Class to Shapefile tool then to GDB, tried Feature Class to Feature Class tool.  All of them are producing an empty Feature Class.  I get the following error when running the tools...

000594: Input feature <value>: <value>.—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

I have confirmed that all of the domain items are set to "Same as Input".  I have tried to use a different Feature Class' domain to see if that would cover the feature class I am trying to convert, but still the same error.  Feature Class to Shapefile works fine, but can't convert to GDB for some reason.  Any ideas on what I can try to get this to work?

I don't know if this was the best solution, but I ran the "Add XY Coordinates" tool for the shapefile, copied the points to an Excel file, I deleted the Z and M columns from the resulting table, I then added the Excel file to my map, then used the XY Table to Point tool to recreate the points.  I ran the Feature Class to Geodatabase tool on the resulting feature class and it got into my GDB.  The points are off by some very tiny fraction of an inch, but good enough for my purposes.

Cheers,

Justin

Copy Features (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation would be my first choice if your intent is to get the shapefile into a geodatabase featureclass

Thank you Dan.  This gives the same error message.

Have you  tried to simply Export the shape file or perform a feature class to feature class

 

That should just about do it....

Yes, I have tried both options and get the same error.

You could also check the following steps.

1. Ensure you are not in edit mode in ArcGIS Pro, and no feature is selected. 

2. Run Recalculate Feature Class Extent (Data Management)

3. Execute Feature Class to Feature Class (Conversion)

Thank you Jayanta.  Unfortunately, Recalculate Feature Class Extent (Data Management) is not licensed with basic so I am not able to try that method to fix the issue.
