Empty Output Generated from Intersect Operation

Discussion created by dubhousing on Jul 16, 2011

I am attempting to intersect two polygons and am getting a warning 000117: empty output generated that I can't seem to shake. 

After browsing through the forums, I have made sure that:

1. I clear 'selected features' before performing the intersect
2. Environments are at defaults
3. Input and output coordinate systems are in accord

Are there other possibilities people are aware of for why this might be happening?

Thanks in advance,
