Why won't arcmap allow me to create a new topology? RightClick on Feature Dataset -> New, Topology is grayed out (see attached)
Sadly you missed the key point which I will highlight
Creating a topology ArcMap 10.5 | Other versions Available with Standard or Advanced license.
Creating a topology ArcMap 10.5 | Other versions
Available with Standard or Advanced license.
You have Basic, sadly
Not sure where you are right-clicking but the recommended procedures are listed here
and then there are the limitations (Topologies and feature datasets)
Stuck at Step 1: "Right-click the feature dataset to which you want to add a topology, point to New, then click Topology". When I point to New, Topology is one of the options, but it is grayed out.
do you have a standard or advanced license?
is everything in the same coordinate system?
License type: Basic
Everything is in NAD83 UTM 13N
I was able to get my hands on an Advanced license, and I was able to add Topology. Thank you for your input!!
