Hi, I'm trying to add a drop down list to a new field I have added to my feature class. Not having any success finding where you do this. Wondering if anyone could tell me where to find these tasks.
In ArcCatalog you need to create a domain that contains your drop down attributes. The domain will be set to work with a specific type of attribute, i.e. string, short integer, long integer, etc...The go do the attribute in the feature you are working with and assign that domain to that attribute.compress your data base and you should be good to go.
Thanks for the fast response, It is not allowing me to type anything in that workspace domain under domain name. I can click in the field but will not allow me to type anything.
close everything down, open arc catalog compress your database then try it.
Tried that still nothing.
Are you working in SDE?If so then you may not have permissions.Unless you have your database locked you should be able to do this.Is your database resident on your hard drive?Try restarting your computer and then trying it.Build a new geodatabase and try to create a domain there.
