I am having trouble sucessfully joining a DB2/400 SQL table to my shapefile in ArcMap 10.2. I created an OLE ODBC database connection in ArcCatalog and it opens up the connection to the database tables that I need. I then bring one of the database tables into my project. I try to join it to the shapefile, which it appears to do, but I end up with only null values. The join used to work in ArcView 3.3 so I know the database fields match (both string fields,etc.). Plus, if I export the database to a DBF and bring that into the project, it joins to the shapefile with no problem. How can I get the join to work with out converting the table to a DBF first??? Any help would be much appreciated!
