Hi everyone

We have currently hit a bug at work which has now been logged by ESRI in America, NIM098090. It isn't searchable online at the moment and I don't know if it ever will be but at least it will be referred to here. I thought it might be worth mentioning it here, in case other people are or happen to experience the same problem.

We use SQL Server 2008 and create database views of data. We prefer to do this using the native SQL Server format rather than ESRI's own SDE binary format.

In ArcGIS 10.2 & 10.2.1 however there is a bug which stops metadata from being created on spatial views and general views when using ArcCatalog to create the view. It is possible to set up an SDE Service and use the SDE commands but ESRI are phasing out the SDE command functionality and the work around looks like it will only work with the SDE bindary format.

Hopefully ESRI will fix the problem soon as it is currently stopping us from creating INSPIRE Metadata, since we need to create views for spatial databases to filter out data than is not required under our INSPIRE obligations.

Kind regards
