I'm in the process of developing a script that will allow me to show the extent of flooding (contours that have been turned into polygons) based on the current water table elevation found at a dam. The polygons were created in one feature class, the elevation data is coming from NOAA using their Map Server which is updated hourly. I don't know if it's possible or not but what I'd like it to do is basically the same thing as a definition query where it only shows a feature if the "contours" attribute in my flooding feature is the same or greater than the "observed" attribute for that dam in the NOAA feature. Am I on to something or do I need to find a workaround and do a query that simply highlights the current stage but still shows all stages? Thanks, Jessica

Over the weekend my IT department migrated everything from one server onto another. When I came in this morning I noticed that in the process, a few of my File Geodatabases had become folders and I couldn't see the feature classes and datasets in ArcMap (currently working with Desktop 10.6). I found the workaround of copy/paste the gdb and timestamps file from a working file geodatabase into the folder in Windows Explorer. This fixed that issue and I was now able to see my data. However, I also need to edit those features and when attempting to start an edit session I receive the error saying that I cannot edit that geodatabase and to ensure that I have the appropriate permissions. I checked and I do. I'm not doing versioning/enterprise so this wasn't a matter going into the Advanced options in Editor. I'm guessing this may be an issue where the file geodatabase itself is missing something related to read/write permissions or editing. All other file geodatabases that were there after the migration are working fine with editing permitted. Has anyone else encountered this and know of a fix? Cheers.
