When I select records in a shapefile to create a new layer, the select fails after a brief period of time. All the records from the original file appear in the new layer not just the ones I selected. I use arcmap 10. What am I doing wrong?
How are you creating a new layer? Are you using the option to "Create Layer From Selected Features", or are you Exporting the data to create a new shapefile?
I am trying to create a new layer. thanks.
Create layer from selected features.
There is also the known bug that may be related - Layer file created using 'Create Layer From Selected Features' option displays all records of original layer instead of the selected features in ArcGIS10.
Why try the suggestions in the Help file
