Error converting to coverage

Discussion created by alex789 on Aug 21, 2012
Hi all,

I am attempting to convert a line shapefile to a coverage using Arc10.  Although I could do this yesterday, today I can't for the life of me get it to work.  I'm getting the following error message:

ERROR 999999: Error executing function.
Invalid topology [Bad file type.]
Failed to execute (FeatureclassToCoverage).

I have given both the destination folder (which is the same as the existing folder) and the ArcGIS/Desktop/bin folder write permission.  In the past, that was enough, but today this did not work.  I have tried quitting arcmap and restarting my computer.  This also did not work.

I have tried cleaning the geometry, to no avail.

I have no trouble converting to a raster.  I have no trouble converting to a coverage when I use arc type instead of route type.  Unfortunately I need routes. 

Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks!
