We have traffic count maps, where there are new stations added every year. We need to add these new stations to the annotation that was created. For Example, we source the count layer to the new shapefile. We now need to get the new stations added into the annotation layer without losing our annotation. How do we update the geodatabase of annotation??

Hi Michelle,

Take a look at the Append Annotation tool.  Possible workflow:

1.  Select new stations, and create a new annotation feature class for selected stations

2.  Append new annotation feature class to existing annotation feature class

Morning Jake, I went ahead and put the new annotation and existing annotation in the same geodatabase but I am still getting an error of "Inputs must reside in the same workplace". Do you know what that means??

That is strange, you shouldn't be getting this error if both annotation feature classes reside in the same geodatabase.  Any chance you can zip and attached the geodatabase?

Hey, maybe I have to save the new appended annotation into another geodatabase. Could that be it?

Try copying both annotation feature classes to a new File Geodatabase and see if you receive the same error when you run the Append Annotation tool.

Figured it out. I forget some of these new tools are written in Python code. No spaces between words (Nomenclature). There were a couple of folders with spaces so the tool wasn't running. When I made the saved title with no spaces ran beautifully. Thank you so much for your help on the append tool.

Is there something else that called workspace? Instead, of geodatabase.
