Hello everyone,

I´m dealing with a very simple issue but unfortunately cannot find any solution. I´m trying to import multiple shapefiles into a file geodatabase using the “Feature Class to geodatabase (multiple)” tool. I´m getting the error: 000732 (Input features: Dataset does not exist or is not supported) (no matter if in ArcMap or ArcCatalog). The dataset comes from the OSM-geodata platform Geofabrik.de. With other shp-files it works just fine. Also when I try the export option after loading the shp-file(s) into the Desktop map window it shows the same error. The SHP aren´t damaged anyway and

don´t include No Data values but I don´t think this will be the problem. Any ideas how to solve this?

Ok the solution is even easier as I thought. The problem was in the file name. There cannot be a dot twice of course cause the dot separates the name of the file from its extension (gis.osm_natural_free_1.shp --> gis_osm_natural_free_1.shp).

Have you examined the coordinates and coordinate system of the files that can be loaded?  If they are coming from a common source and they are the only ones with errors, then you will have to back track what the source is doing that Arc* doesn't like (little things like X, Y's being swapped, incorrect geometry run a repair on them to check).

Do all this in an empty data frame if you are using arcmap or an empty map in PRO. ie... no other data
