In #ArcGISPro 2.0.1 Field calculator applies the value on ALL features and not only SELECTION. The same operation worked perfectly with the same data in the same FGDB in ArcMap.
That hasn't been my experience. Do you have an image of running the calculate field when the table is open with records selected to demonstrate? It is a file geodatabase table I presume? or is it some other form of table?
I can't find the reason but I retried it and now it's working! It applies only to selected features. I posted it on ArcGIS Ideas anyways and will return to this post if it repeats again.
Thanks for your answer
Recently, I had the same problem in AGP 2.1. Here's what I found:
Calculate Field ignored the selection parameters when calculating a field in a feature class that was included multiple times in the map. Once I removed the copies of the feature class, Calculate Field worked as expected (calculated only the selected features). Hope this helps, and hope ESRI documents/fixes this!
Are we talking duplicate layer names or two differently named layers that reference the same gdb dataset?
