Hi folks,

I have a problem with the 'Point Distance' tool to determine the distances from input point features to all points in a second point feature layer. After starting the tool, I always get the following error message: "Error 999999: error executing function". Both feature layers have the same projected coordinate system and are rather small (4 records in the input feature layer and 73 records in the near feature layer). I really don't get the problem.

Does anyone know what can cause the error message and how can I solve this?

Many thanks!
