I am using ArcGIS 10.2 I am getting this error when i try to create a feature class for a table to be used in a layer.
Underlying DBMS Error [[Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 11.0][SQL Server][Incorrect Syntax near '-'.]
I am using SQL Server 2012. Please let me know how to fix this issue.
Make sure the native client is of same or higher version than the SQL Server (including the version of patch).
Also check if the listener is configured correctly.
The problem was resolved by removing '-' from the DB name. We used to have same DB Name with previous versions of ArcMAP. Not sure why it does not allow hyphen in DB Name.
