Using 10.1, ArcCatalog, personal geodatabase with two feature datasets.

 

In one of the feature datasets I am able to delete the dataset or any of the feature classes within that dataset but when I try to delete the other feature dataset or a feature class in it the Delete is grayed out. Is my GDB corrupted or a bug, or??? There isn't a lock on the database either when I'm trying to do this.

 

This is all occurring in the BISDM3.mdb I downloaded from Esri.

If I'm understanding what I'm being told, this was created with Network Analyst, which is different than a geometric network that you only need ArcInfo to create, and that's why I can't delete it.

Since I don't have the Network Analyst extension (and I've never used it), I'll just have to do the work around to get rid of that feature dataset.

Thanks for your help guys!

Here is a copy of that same geodatabase with the Network Dataset deleted, in case that helps.

Also mark the helpful posts and close the thread if you have no other questions.
