I am using the Geometry Coercer to convert a polygon feature to polyline (both ESRI Geodatabase Feature Classes).

However, an error in the output dialog always states:
Cannot write a non-linear feature to a polyline feature class

Any help is appreciated.

Cheers,

Nelson

Hi Nelson,

One suggestion, check the parameters of the destination type via Feature Type Properties window, does changing the Allowed Geometries to "geodb_polygon" result in correct output or does it generate same error? The GeometryCoercer transformer can't be directly used to convert donut polygons to  lines. If you need to do this, extract the donut parts first using the DonutHoleExtractor transformer.

Thanks,
Denise

Hazaa!

That worked wonderfully, managed to feed my office with all those extracted donuts.

Thanks Denise.
