Reclassify tool (convert NODATA to value) works in ArcMap / fails in ArcGIS Pro

Good morning,

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

I've already found a workaround for this issue, but it's less than ideal.

Using the reclassify tool (Spatial Analyst), I was reclassing a raster that created from a polygon feature class.

The raster had a value in each cell within the polygon, and a NODATA everywhere else.

Using the reclass tool in ArcMap, to change these NODATA cells to have a real value, worked fine.

Using the reclass tool in ArcGIS Pro, however, using the same feature classes, failed when I did this, with this error:

ERROR 999999: Something unexpected caused the tool to fail. Contact Esri Technical Support ( to Report a Bug, and refer to the error help for potential solutions or workarounds. Failed to execute (Reclassify)

what did you use for the ... missing_values ... parameter?


You might want to have a look at this updated and recommended workflow for using Reclass for rasters.

It might provide some illumination on potential pitfalls and differences between arcmap and Pro

Hi Mike:

Which version of pro arc you using? Is it reproducible in Pro? If so, please either submit a tech support incident or post your data and precise steps to repro to this thread.

PS: Also double check your current GP environments (cell size, output sr, output extent, snap raster). Make sure they are what you intended.
