Hi, Sorry if this is not posted in the correct place, but I was not sure where to put it.  I am trying to use the Summary Statistics tool to create a summary table for a polygon layer.  In the Statistics Field drop down menu I can only select the available field headings from the layers attribute table (ID, Gridcode etc...).  However, when I make a selection I get "Error 000800 -  The value is not a member of SUM|MEAN|MIN|MAX|RANGE|STD|COUNT|FIRST|LAST".   I have tried to enter some of those values in the field manually, but I get the same error.  Seems like it is just something  I am overlooking, but  I can't figure it out.  I am using ArcGIS 10 with Windows 7 professional.  Any help is appreciated...

Thanks,

Graham

Having this same problem, been at it for hours and I have no idea what to do. I'm getting the same error message over and over no matter what I enter for the Statistics Field. How did you fix this?

Chelsea, can you load the picture into Geonet instead? I really don't want to sign up for yet another website!

I'm guessing the problem was solved by everyone by completing all the parameters in order in the tool dialog.

Under 'Statistic Type' there is a drop down box. You need to select the summary statistic type first and then run the tool.Hi there, below
