Hi All,


I am trying to solve a problem I am having with merging multiple layers then splitting them by attribute.


I keep receiving an error when I try to merge layers. "Objects in this class cannot be updated outside an edit session" [NewMergedLayer] 


Is there any easier way to merge or select layers and filter by an attribute to create a new layer?


I am currently working with 88 layers that I would like to merge into 4 or 5 layers and then split them by their "status" attribute. The statuses are to show if they work has been completed on an asset. "Completed" or "Not started"


I have also tried to using the selection tool on the map to create a new layer but it will not allow me to do this with multiple layers. 


Am I doing something wrong? Any advice or suggestions are appreciated.


Thanks in advance!
