Hi there

I have some featureclasses with a lot of records/objects in the tables.

Now we have discovered that some of the "attached" domains in the geodatabase was not correctly.....We changed/updated the domains...and if we record a new object all the new things are there, but if we want to "edit" the existing object, the new "rules" is missing???

What do we miss ??

Is there a tool, script or model to do the update automaticly ??

One example:

  • We have collected 1000 records/objects for Fire Hydrants with type 1, 2 and 3 valves.

  • Later on we discover the power of using Domains for NON GIS people in Field collection, so we want to upgrade the tables.

  • We now create a Domain with 8"/10"/12" selectable valves and with a "table related value" connected to the type 1, 2 and 3.

  • When we make a NEW record everything functions OK and the user can select 8", 10" or 12".

  • When we want to EDIT an existing record, only the old value/function is there, so he has to know what value 1, 2 and 3 means.

Anyone with a solution ???????????????????
