zonal statistics as table for over one million grid cells

Discussion created by blub8 on Mar 15, 2011

I want to extract values like population out of over one million grid cells which display the whole world. In the end, these values should be illustrated in a table. I tried a few formulas and the spatial analyst tool "zonal statistics as table" yet. But always it appeared an error message. Is there a limitation for the input number of value fields/grid cells?
Originally, one layer was a NetCDF. I converted it as well to a raster as to a feature layer, but nothing helped...

I hope you have some ideas and you can help me :)
