Hi, I'm using ArcGIS 10.2. Whenever I try to run any tool and choose my desired folder location for saving my output, The application process shows ERROR but if I try the same operation with default work place (i.e. C:\Users\Dell\Documents\ArcGIS) then operation runs successfully. But I don't understand why it is happening. Can any body help me to get rid of this problem. Thanks in advance.
Which geoprocessing tool are you using?
If the intended output data format is a Geodatabase Feature Class, you need to save it in a Personal/File Geodatabase. If the output data format is a shapefile, you need to choose a basic folder as workspace.
Could you provide a screenshot of a tool (which throws error) with all the required parameters filled?
Thanks for your advice. Yes, if I save it on any 'File geodatabase folder' then it works. But I have used many times "Flood GFT Tool" for my research but I never used any File geodatabase folder for saving my output. But after installing GIS software in my new laptop, I found this problem for the first time, it seems very weird. Any way how do i recognize that I should save my output in a geodatabase folder or not before facing any error message?
While defining the output feature, are you getting the option of changing the feature type (Shapefile/Geodatabase FeatureClass), below the feature class name?
By default, the Feature Type is Geodatabase Feature Class. You should be able to change it from the drop-down.
Actually the tool that I am using it is for simple flood modelling. So there is no option for selecting feature or geodatabase feature type. During starting time, I have to mention my desired output folder so that all output will be automatically sored in that folder. But weird problem is if I select default folder what automatically generate during ArcGIS Installation time in C drive then I don't need to create any geodatabase folder and even only simple folder is ok for storing my output. But If i want to save it in any other folder except in C drive, I have to create Geodatabase folder. But now new problem arise, I successfully stored my output from first step of my modelling but when I am going for 2nd step then again it is saying error even the desired folder is geodatabase folder but in C drive it works successfully again. Its really frustrating.
