I've been trying to use the composite bands tool both in arcCatalog10 and arcMap10 in order to stack landsat images, but each time I try, it fails and gives the general error 999999. I have no spaces in my file line and I can't figure out what the problem could be. Any ideas?
I had a similar problem. With some Grids (ESRI Grid), the composite bands function was fine, but with other grids with similar extent and values it repeatedly threw the 999999 error. The workaround seemed to be to output to TIF format instead of ESRI Grid.
Sorry for the thread bump, but I am having this error with the Composite Bands tool generating error 999999 in ArcMap10. Error message shown is:-
Executing: CompositeBands (Raster1);(Raster2);(Raster3) D:\Simon_M\Simulation\Simulation.mdb\SM2.bsq Start Time: Tue Aug 13 16:54:21 2013 ERROR 999999: Error executing function. General function failure 'SM2.bsq' is not a valid name. Make sure that it does not include invalid characters or punctuation and that it is not too long. Failed to execute (CompositeBands). Failed at Tue Aug 13 16:54:21 2013 (Elapsed Time: 0,00 seconds)
I get this error only when my file is given an extension, e.g. .bsq, .tif, .img I do not get this error when saving as ESRI grid, but I require an output bsq file. I have tried all the advice posted in this thread, but cannot resolve this. Can someone help me with this please?
