Error while working with zonal statistics as table

Hi everyone!

Thanks for reading this post -

I'm trying to get "zonal statistics as table to work", but am encountering an error "background processing has encountered a serious error and is unable to continue". The error log code (in case that is relevant) is "000000_12301899".

After I switched off background processing, the execution started but stalled at 91%.

My zone dataset is an integer raster with about 1200 zones, and my zone field is a string. My value dataset is a raster with values between 0 and 48.7. I am only interested in the SUM function.

My zone and value datasets have 17,302 columns and 10,937 - if you think this is too much for ArcGIS to process, could you recommend practical ways to segment the data such that my zones are not cut up?

Any help would be greatly appreciated - happy to give more details!

Thanks in advance
