I've had a running python script for 5+ years in which it utilizes the Make Query Table Tool and Copy Rows tool to create a .dbf table. All has been running fine until upgrading to 10.4.1. The original table is accessed thru an OL db connection with Make Query Tool/Copy Rows and copied to a .dbf. However many of the records with a "short integer" field are being changed to a "long integer". This did not occur prior to the upgrade. I've tested the tools directly in ArcCatalog and get the same results, so I don't think it's related to the script itself.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thank you for pointing this out. I didn't realize the problem started in 10.3. Based on your original post, it seems this is a known issue and a big one at that. I agree with the thread https://community.esri.com/thread/159997
that ESRI needs to look at this and fix the bug. Unless it's addressed I guess i'll have to rewrite my scipts to account for this bug.
Thanx again, Eddie
