Hi mates,

I have a feature class in my GDB but I cannot open it now, with the error message "Error opening feature class. General Function Failure", like screenshot below.

I cannot load the data to ArcCatalog or ArcMao anymore, could you please help?

Is this in a file or enterprise geodatabase?

Any other feature classes have the same error message when added to the desktop client?

Can any other users add the same data?

in arc catalog create a model that will export the featureclass as a shape file

export the model as a python script.

Run the script and see if you can open the shapefile. 

if it works you can rebuild the faulty feature class in your database from the shape file
