I just imported a shapefile from arcgis online. The layer appears on the map but there is no attribute table associated with it, which I need for my analysis. Is this a restriction from the source of the shapefile or is there something I can do to access the table?
Thank you for your time!
What is the source listed in the Source tab of the layer properties? Is it a local or online path?
If it's online, then somewhere in the path will (probably) be either 'MapServer' or 'FeatureServer'. If you see MapServer then you'll only be getting images of the data, not the actual data.
This is an example of a source URL for a map service.
This is the same data source as a feature service.
