I created a layer on my desktop and I can't get it to work on my new laptop. The source data is correct, but when I go to 'set data source' it says the container is empty. So basically it's a Geodatabase file that won't open. I've tried about a million things so far. At my wit's end.
I took GIS classes about a decade ago and now I'm about to start graduate school so I'm kind of starting from scratch. Any help would be much appreciated. The attachment should make more sense than I do right now. Thanks in advance!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you have both the desktop and laptop, locate the geodatabase using Windows Explorer and copy it to a usb drive and relocate it into the exact same folder structure that existed on the source machine.
Thanks so much for trying to help me. I wasn't 100% sure how to do what you said, but I think it's something I've been trying all day, where I would upload the files in the same way, but it never worked. I did what Jayanta said and made a map package and it finally works. Seems so simple, I can't believe I didn't try that. I really appreciate you responding. Now I can get back to regular life :)
Thank you so much, that worked!!! I saw that hours ago but thought it was going to be shared with my school and didn't want to do that. I just didn't check those boxes and I think I'm good. Thanks again, I really appreciate it!
