Curious if anyone else has ever had this happen. . . .

After running this tool against a field in one of my feature classes, I expect to see a count for every unique value within that field in a new table.

What I have been seeing is while it does return a count many values are listed multiple times.

In the example below I'm running it against the COMPKEY field, If it was working the way I expect the value 0 should only appear once. Maybe I don't understand the way this tool works, but it's strange. fyi - this is using arcmap 10.2.1

Maybe there are spaces in front of the 0's...

Thanks Solomon,

That could be it, but don't know how. The field I'm trying to run the frequency against is a long integer field. Is it possible for spaces to get inserted before a zero in a long integer field?

Hi Joe,

you can try the summarize command. Right-click on COMPKEY field in your original table and create the table. I think you will have the correct frequencies.

I can't explain it to you but I have encountered the same problem.
