I am using ArcMap 10.5.1 and am struggling with fixing a single attribute within a layer that doesn't work with the copy & paste function. What I'm specifically trying to do involves taking one attribute from a layer and pasting it into another layer. However, every time I try to do this, an error message comes up that says "HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component". I have tried a lot of the basic suggestions (i.e. turning off background processing, repair geometry, created new layer with same info, etc.) but have not been successful. I ruled out the possibility of the copy & paste tool not working in general because it works on other attributes within the same layer & other layers.
Hello madam, in order for the members to understand the problem, is it possible to include a picture of the nature of the problem you are facing in the program, and for all appreciation and respect, M. Sabah Al Barwari.
