I would like to replace existing feature class data with new shapefile data.  I receive periodic data updates in shapefile format that I would like to apply to existing feature classes.  IE existing feature class has 20 k rows of data, new file is updated with 2000 new rows of data, so 22k rows in the new shapefile.

I thought truncate (then load) would work, but getting an error.   Is there a more straight forward method I'm missing?

Any advice greatly appreciated ,....Thanks!!

 

using ArcGIS 10.4.1

Error, what error specifically?  Is the feature class in question being used in publication of GIS services?

Is the data Versioned? Truncate doesn't work on Versioned data...

Share the error with us if possible..
