Map Service Publisher: Analyze Map: Error 00004: Layer's data source is not supported

Discussion created by NCSitingTool on May 18, 2012
In the analyze map step, I cannot get the error message "00004: Layer's data source is not supported" to stop appearing. Every time I try to fix a layer, the next layer below it in the Table of Contents gives the same error message.
This error message appears for excel files, shape files, layer files, web map services, and even the data frame titled "Layers" is somehow not supported.

The fix is to "Replace the unsupported data source with a supported geodatabase feature class." but I have no idea how to do this. Is this done in ArcCatalog or ArcMap? Can someone explain this step by step? Do I need to do this for every layer?

00032: Standalone table's data source is inaccessible
This is the error listed for the dataframe.

00004: Layer's data source is not supported
This is the error listed for every layer in the map.

Please help,
Megan
