I have a project with multiple layers from my database loaded in to it. However, I have one layer that won't load into the map. It's just a simple line layer. It gives me the error message:: "Failed to add data, unsupported data type."
what is the file type? is it in a geodatabase or a separate file? can you open it in arcmap? if so, export it out in another format in another location and see if that can be loaded
It is one of our most common and most used layers in our enterprise geodatabase. I have layers from this same geodatabase that work just fine but this one won't work. It opens fine in ArcMap. I could do a work-around but I'm really trying to get to the bottom of why it won't show.
I am sure you have figured this problem out by now but I just ran into this same issue myself. I could see all of the layers in my database but when I tried to add it into my map I would get an error. I did some poking around and figure out that it was a permission issue. Once I connected to my database using the correct account. I was able to add my layer into the map.
