Greetings,

I am working with ArcGIS pro 2.6.0

I created Metadata for a number of layers, that I can view, when I select View Metadata.

However when I forward a file gdb to my colleagues, they cannot view the data. Could this be due to a file lock, or ??? All the icons are green, and wMeta-title.png

 

Meta-details.png

 

e don't get any error message!!

It is really annoying to spend ages setting-up the Metadata, and it doesn't work as expected.

 

I would appreciate any pointers..

Regards,

Clive

Not sure what you mean by this.  The meta data should follow the feature class it was assigned to. 

That should just about do it....

Something occurred to me: What style of metadata did you create the metadata in?  I wonder if your colleagues cannot see it because they have their metadata set to a different style....

That should just about do it....
