Novice GIS user. My apologies in advance for not using the right nomenclature. 

I am having issues with exporting selected data

Using Chelan County GIS 2 dataset found on ArcGIS online.
 
When I import the data to my ArcGIS (Using ArcMap 10.4), the file is quite large so I have been attempting to select specific areas in the parcel layer (e.g 500 parcels, all adjacent) 
I select the all the parcels I want to review and it highlights them as usual.  (however extremely slow compared to other parcel searches from different counties) 
 
I then do the Data-Export Data -and save the shapefile.
 
When I open up this new layer nothing shows up and the Attributes Table only shows headers.
 
What am I doing wrong?  Is it the data set or is there just a step I am missing?
 
My only experience is with downloaded shapefiles from county websites so this is my first attempt with data directly from ArcGIS Online.
 
Any feedback helps.  Thank you in advance.

Hi @Cardan,

My apologies for the inconvenience.

I have went ahead and looked into the dataset, I am assuming it is this one: https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=71998dc59ecb444ab8dc6cd2bcf6a8fe

The reason why the dataset is incredibly slow is because you are dealing with a ArcGIS Rest Service; put simply, this data is hosted on a server and it needs to reload any time you pan, zoom, etc.

In regard to your issue, try this alternative:

  1. Select the subset of the parcel data
  2. Right click on the layer in the table of contents and go to 'Selection' > 'Create Layer from Selected Features'

  3. In the search pane, search for 'Feature Class to Feature Class' N_W_S_E_0-1653399907765.png

    Select Feature Class to Feature Class (conversion)

  4. Fill in the parameters in the Feature Class to Feature Class conversion dialogue boxN_W_S_E_2-1653400293969.png
  5. Click 'Environments...' and disable M and Z values N_W_S_E_3-1653400374847.png
  6. Click 'ok', and then run the feature class to feature class conversion
  7. The subset is created

If this does not work, do not hesitate t o let me know and I can come up with another workflow!

It could be that the dataset has Z and M values associated with it. After your selection, and when you're in the Data > Export Data dialogue box, select the Environments button at the bottom. When in the Environments, disable Z and M values, and then try to export.

Note: this is just off of pure speculation; I have not looked into the dataset. If this method doesn't work, let me know and I will download the dataset and explore it myself to offer other solutions.

Hi NWSE,

Thank you for the response. When I do the Data>Export Data, The dialogue box does not have any other options. I have attached a short GIF, showing the issue.

Along with my export issue, it is painfully slow to load. This county only has ~46k parcels and I am accustom to analyzing a nearby county with ~300k parcels with little issue.   Unsure if the issues are connected or not.

 

Thank you again.

That worked!  Thank you Thank you!

I was able to put them into their own layer which now opens the data tables and it's now much much quicker. Thank you again. It is truly appreciated.

You're very welcome!

Yes, this method takes the hosted data and converts it into a local copy. Because the data is now stored on your computer locally, you will have a much easier time working with it, and significantly faster processing times.
