Shapefile is not created while using the Point to Line tool. Not receiving any error, just shapefile is not being saved.
Perhaps share the Python script you're using, or a screenshot of your tool dialog. Also, what version and product are you using? More details, please.
I'm using ArcGIS 10.2 Advanced License.
My input file is a point shapefile.
Even though I stated a location (tried different directories) for the output file. it is not saved. There were also no errors in the session.
Lets try a visual
As you can see the Elapsed Time is 0.00 seconds. don't know why it's not working.
Here are a few observations from my dataset. It is a CSV file. I import it into ArcGIS and create a point shapefile (WGS_1984).
make the csv file an event layer using File, Add Data, Add XY data and bring it into a new arcmap data frame
just for fun, save it as a featurelayer or even its own shapefile by exporting it.
use that file in the tool, ensuring that you have no records selected and that the layer indeed does show on screen
pick a file path without spaces
don't use anything other than letters, numbers and the _ in file names ie no '-' just to be safe
Tried everything that you mentioned, still does not work. I'm wondering if there is a problem with my Point to Line tool.
Just to beat a dead horse, I get the following error when I try to save using your file name, because it contains a hyphen. No hyphen, no problem. I'm not sure why you don't see this error.
Sorry about that, I noticed the error with the hyphen in the name, I corrected it, but still got the same problem I spoke with the person I got the data from, and he was able to use the Point to Line tool with no problems. He's thinking that there might be a glitch in my Point to Line tool. I will probably need to contact ESRI about this issue.
Thanks for your help.
Read my post... the last line about not using a hyphen in the file name... did you see what Darren saw? Did you do the steps I suggest to get to this point?
make sure you don't have a point selected prior to running the tool... this might give rise to...

and it makes a featureclass I believe, so you might want to check your default geodatabase incase it isn't a shapefile but an FC

So, I am having the same problem. I have a very basic point set, I run the point to line tool, it says it is successful, no output is created. It doesn't matter if I put the output into a geodatabase or into a shape file, none of my file paths have spaces are dashes. I am not sure how to attach my data set.
