Hello

Can you help me solve a problem which has the following symptoms please?

I export a feature class from our ArcSDE Enterprise Geodatabase to a local file geodatabase (using FeatureClassToFeatureClass) and then I want to import the feature class back from the local file geodatabase to the SDE geodatabase (using FeatureClassToFeatureClass) as a new feature class with a new name but I get the following kind of response (with a point feautre class):

It has happened with more than one feature class but it does not happen with every feature class. Everything I found about this problem suggests that this problem can occur if the feature that is being inserted has a geometry or attribute value that is not suitable for the data type in the output geodatabase but I cannot find any mismatch (or don't know how to find it) and I would expect ArcGIS to handle this when it's a transfer "from ArcGIS to ArcGIS".

Some features get inserted OK. I looked at some of the features listed in the warning messages but I cannot see anything wrong with them.I tried CopyFeatures but it produced the same result.

All parts are at version 10.2.2.

Any hint welcome!

Filip.
