I'm trying to modify the coordinate system of a featureclass but I recieved the error; "Failed to alter the spatial reference. Layer not found." I saw a similar problem posted on here before but the solution provided was not suffient enough to solve the problem.

I've tried to change it through ArcToolbox and Properties of featureclass (from ArcCatalog).  I've even made sure no one locking this featureclass.  I'm running out of work around ideas to solve this problem.

I am using ArcGIS 9.3.1, ArcSDE 9.1

I hope you can help me out.

Thank you in advance.
