Hello,

I'm running the feature compare tool against a few layers and some assistance with the text file that is outputted would be appreciated.

One line in the results states:

Has_error, Identifier, Message, Base_value, Test_value, ObjectID

"true", "Field", "Field URL lengths are different", "4000", "1073741822", -1

"true", "Field", "Field SHAPE required is different", "false", "true", -1

"false", "FeatureClass", "Shape types are the same", " ", " ", -1

"false", "FeatureClass", "Feature types are the same", " ", " ", -1

"false", "Table", "Table row counts are the same", " ", " ", -1

"false", "FeatureClass", "Feature class extents are the same", " ", " ", -1

"false", "GeometryDef", "GeometryDefs are the same", " ", " ", -1

I understand the the URL difference, but the Shape difference is stumping me. I've manually compared the field properties for each feature and they are identical. See below:

Feature Base

Alias                            SHAPE

Allow NULL Values       Yes

Geometry Type             Polygon

Feature Test

Alias                            SHAPE

Allow NULL Values       Yes

Geometry Type             Polygon

Would really appreciate any feedback that someone may have

Thank You

Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,

I believe the "Field SHAPE required..." check is for an internal property.  I'm guessing from your other posts that you are comparing old data with new?  If so, I would not be surprised if differences like this may come up.  I would guess that this property check can be safely ignored. If you would like me to confirm, please send me the input base and test feature classes as well as all the parameters you passed in to the FeatureCompare tool when you are seeing this.

Thanks,

Ken

Hi Ken,

Appreciate you looking at those results above. I was also under the impression that I could safely ignore the SHAPE error above.In any case, I've attached the data as well as the properties I put into the feature compare tool.

Let me know you thoughts, thanks again

I’ve confirmed it’s fine to ignore this message.

Thanks for checking Ken,

We just want to make sure that the layers which exist right now in SDE 9.1 are the same when we create them in SDE 10.1. Confirming that no errors exist in the data since we have many customers consuming this information.

Are they're any other checks you know of or tools out there that I could use to confirm similarities ?

Thanks

Jenn

Perfect, the GUI ArcTool box is the way I'm going to proceed with this comparison. I don't have access to backend coding, In any case the toolset should work the same way.

Thanks Ken
