ArcGIS Pro 2.2
I am trying to add a .dbf table from disk to an existing map in an ArcGIS Pro project. The addTable method of the Map class works with a file geodatabase table, but does not work with a .dbf table. I created a simple map and script tool to test this, and a python script tool with a single input parameter of type "Table"
Here is the python script:
#script tool for testing addTable
theTable = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0)
theProject = arcpy.mp.ArcGISProject("CURRENT")
theMap = theProject.listMaps()
#now add table to map - use table function of mp to create a table object
# then use addTable method of map to add the table
theSumTab = arcpy.mp.Table(theTable)
When I test this script tool by navigating to a file geodatabase table everything works:
When I test this script tool by navigating to a .dbf table it fails:
Do I need to do something differently in order for this to work with a .dbf table? Or does addTable just not have that functionality. It doesn't specify that in the help: http://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/arcpy/mapping/map-class.htm
Thanks for any input.
