When copying or appending a feature class with attachments into another feature that has also attachments does it copy the attachments?
Can it be done with Model Builder?.
I am assuming that you tried it within a geodatabase and it didn't work, or didn't work as you expected, so you should really have a look at the An overview of the Attachments toolset—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop
Same question as Jose really.
I have a (fgdb) feature class containing records with attachments which I want to merge with another feature class containing records. All I can establish is copying records but losing the attachments,
Is there a how-to about this? I've read the link Mr Patterson mentioned above but I can't find a copy-paste or merge action.
At the moment i'm thinking along the lines of:
use a cursor to walk through the records in FC1
Detect if an attachment is present
if no attachment present, just copy the record to FC2
if an attachment is present, export the attachment (found this as a starter http://support.esri.com/technical-article/000011912)
copy the record to FC2
re-attach the attachment to the record in FC2 (using add attachment from Mr Pattersons link above)
Any thoughts are appreciated, when successfull I'll keep you posted. (When desparate, I'll keep you posted as well ;-))
This function is available in arcGIS desktop 10.5 and Pro. If you are not on that version have a look at the thread On this site
It is only available with the Standard and Advanced licenses as pointed out in my link... that could be the issue
