There actually is a ton of info online.  Start here:  Overview - Attribute Assistant | ArcGIS Solutions and then step through the set up, configure dyanamic value table etc.

Or, start here:  Overview - Attribute Assistant | ArcGIS Solutions and take a look at All Methods.

Once you get your feet wet, you'll have specific questions, I'm sure.  Post them as you come up with them.

Best of luck

That should just about do it....

Joe,thanks for your help, I read all available documents and set some rules in Dynamic table but  none of them are working except last value, can you help me what mistake I am doing here.

Of the methods you show, I've only used the Intersecting_Feature, so I won't be much help with the others.  That said, I do see a few things that are puzzling.

In your Table Name column, I see references to 'dot' names, like Asset.Main_LINE.  I assume this is an enterprise geodatabase feature (SDE)?  If so, drop the Asset. and just go with Main_LINE.  

OID 180 does not reference 'Asset.' so I'm wondering if you are trying to update data that reside in different databases.  Again I can only speculate this is the case.  You can only edit features/tables from one geodatabase at a time.

OID 182 is a complete mystery to me with * as the table name; I've never got the lastvalue method to work for me.

Finally, do you have the log file running?  If so, it can give you an idea what is or isn't going on.  If not, go into the .config file and set logging to <true> and give it a directory path in which to write the log.  I use the same path to the config file for the log file.  I've found the log file to be a great asset for trouble shooting; mmiller-esristaff‌ the ESRI Attribute Assistant go-to guy stressed that to me.

Let me know if you get it going or still have problems...

That should just about do it....

I believe Joe is correct.  Try just the Feature Class name, you do not need to use owner and database.  Same for fields.

Thanks Joe, it worked!!! Just tried with feature class name.

OID 182 is a complete mystery to me with * as the table name; I've never got the lastvalue method to work for me---"*"means , value applies for all the table, first method it worked for me was Last value.

Michael Miller do you know why this  method is not working. I am trying to split the main when I place the valve feature. Any suggestions?

Sorry I can't offer a solution- perhaps Michael Miller‌ can.  I don't use attribute assistant any more with the release of Attribute Rules.  Anything AA does you can do with Attribute Rules.

That should just about do it....

I am not sure what the issue is.  Could you provide more details?  Turning on the AA Debug log would help too

First I would like to thank you very much, Michael Miller, as you gave some of your precious time to answer my doubt, wich I never dream that would be you in person to do it, it is really an honor.

I will try to be as explicit as possible: I can´t turn on the debug log, but i will leave here the config file in attachment, which might help. I use the AA version 2019.2.14. and 10.7.1 Desktop.

I am organizing a land registry for a very important entity in my country, and in the following example I intend that
Each row contains is transferred to another row , this work only for 2 selected rows(source and target), but i want to perfom many fields, making possible  to reduce buttons clicks.
