Trying to calculate length in ArcGIS 10, Service Pack 3 on Windows 7.
Used Calculate Geometry sucessfully to calculate the XY end coordinates of the lines in a 400, 000+ record dbase file.
Then used the tool 'XY to Line' to produce a resultant file.
Added a field called Distance (data type double) to the result file.
Right click on 'Distance', scrolled to Calculate Geometry.
The top dropdown box showed Length-Disabled.
This procedure worked for a file with 4 records.
I found the procedure at this link:
Had some problems until I got a Unique ID for all the records but after that still got Length -Disabled.

Any help will be sincerely appreciated!
