All,

We have created a four spatial views and three of them have retained the shape field property like geometry type and projections but one of view does not retained the geometry type of a shape field and projection of it.

I am new to GIS and ArcGIS so can anyone guide on this. 

Thanks,

When ArcGIS scans a spatial view for Geometry type it looks at the record in the first row. If the type cannot be found because its null or missing the geometry, no Geometry type is chosen. If you know what Geometry type it should be, then you can set it for you session by opening the properties and selecting the type under the General tab. However, this will only last for the session.
