Is there any way to export the *.lyr file which I downloaded from the web or using it for analysis?
I can view it on arcmap, I can see the information stored in each polygons within this layer file but I can not select or extract the data at all and I cant do any analysis as well.
I would appreciate your support.
Try the Copy Features tool in arctoolbox and make a copy of the features to a new feature class. See if that one can be used. What type of analysis tool were you trying to use? see if it accepts layer files (lyr) as input . Also, see if the lyr file has its attributes set to read only at the operating system level (right-click on the layer in File Explorer and check the properties there)
Thanks for your quick reply!
Unfortunately I keep receiving an error "one or more dropped items were invalid and will not be added to the control" .
below are the properties:
Data Type: ArcGIS Map Service
Operations Allowed: Map (Display), Query (Identify), Data (Find)
Map Service Type: Not Cached
Do you think there is another way to export the data?
