I returned to my project after a few weeks and all links to .csv files are broken and Arc is not "seeing" the csv files when I try to manually reconnect or make a new layer
Are the csv files saved on your network or up in AGOL? If in AGOL, I wonder if the issues on Tuesday might be related to the problems you are having with csv files.
Hi Michael, Thanks for the feedback. The csv files are on my C drive in my microsoft OneDrive folder which syncs to OneDrive server. They are not in AGOL. I'm not aware of what issues occurred on Tuesday. Any other ideas?
OneDrive could be the issue. I have seen students having issues with trying to use data stored on those 'cloudy' things. Sometimes, no problem, until it is necessary. Also csv to geodatabase tables is best even if it requires extra work
Thanks for your steer. I think it is a bug in OneDrive. Following your suggestion I tried to convert a CSV file to a table in my project geodatabase using Conversion Tools\Table to Geodatabase. Again Arc could not "see" the CSV file that is sitting on my C Drive at C:\Users\[my_username]\OneDrive\Documents\etc. This is the local drive directory that OneDrive syncs to its cloud server. My entire ArcGIS Pro project is in this directory, including the project Geodatabase. When I copied all the CSV files out to my standard Documents directory, I was able to convert the data to tables in my project geodatabase (which itself is still in the local OneDrive directory). I could also salvage all the symbology and labeling formatting. So all good now with that work-around but there is definitely a bug/issue with Arc recognizing csv and excel files that are syncing with OneDrive.
glad it worked out!
but avoid those "cloudy" places at all costs
Do you have the following setting checked in OneDrive?
It could have been updated then set by your Org at the admin level.
