Here is a straight forward one - I have done it countless time, but today, no go.
I have a Annotation Feature Class in a FGDB and I was to export into and SDE. When I import or export to the SDE the files appears to come in but then everything is NULL and of course nothing shows up.
When I perform a copy and paste I get an error saying it cannot be done because they do not have the same spatial reference. I know this is not the case as they are indeed the same spatial reference.
Any ideas? A 30 second task is turning problematic, what is the obvious step I am missing?
When you perform the copy/paste, are you attempting to paste the data into a feature dataset? What happens if you just try to paste the data into the geodatabase itself?
Thanks for the reply. When I copy/paste into the database it works, at least I have got it that far.. Now when I try to copy/paste, drag/drop, import/export into the feature dataset I get the error that the spatial references do not match. They in fact are the same - not sure where it is getting hung up.
Using the Append tool I was able to get this annotation FC into the feature dataset. I had to specify the output feature class in the append anno dialogue. If I created an empty feature class first and then tried to append to it, I was unsuccessful. Also had to make sure that I checked the box to 'Create a single annotation feature class'
Thanks for the suggestion.
