Sounds like the versioning in the SDE is locked up. Might need the SDE guy to check it. You can try working off line and do your work then go back on line to check things back in if you edit anything.
This happens each time I crash when the SDE is open. I'm not sure how to work offline, then go back online. I'm not editing any of the data, just connecting to the SDE for display purposes.
With MAP3D there's button the status line with the 2D/3D view buttons. In Civil 3D unless you hacked the registry to get the map status line you can use the command line
However if you're not editing the data then why not save it (the SDE layer) to SDF format after you connect then disconnect from it and work with the SDF file(s). The only draw back is if the SDE data gets updated daily and you want to keep your data curent you would need to save to a new SDF daily. In whick case for display only the SDE guru should be usng WMF/WMS format anyways that you could connect to.
Nothing worst that having GIS and having people not knowing how to manage it. (not directed toward you Lisa)
Yep, need the updated data. And yes, I'm working through Civil 3D. I'll make a couple of aliases or buttons on my toolbar. Thanks a bunch Murph.
Well as soon as I started the _MapWorkOffline command, the process started and FE.
UAV 0x64ac628 Exception at 77811da0h... darn. I'll have to get with our GIS dept and see if he can help, but I doubt it. I really was hoping that being able to use our SDE data in real time would solve issues that we have with outdated data. I like live maps. I'm still going to hang on to those commands.
As long as you are just displaying the data, you might be able to bypass the SDE altogether and connect to the main database from Oracle or SQL. The SDE "server" is only a middle ware app that pulls the data from another Geodatabase. You might need to get the GIS/dba guy to create a read only account and provide you with the service name and the datastore. (or risk hacking into it and don't mention it to them) : )
I am experiencing the same error. Our goal is to primarily to view but also to be able to edit the data in the SDE since that is our central database we access with ArcGIS 10 (GIS group) and with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012 (CAD group). Do I need to look more into versioning?
And what do the 2D/3D buttons from Map 3D do that makes a difference? (I'm new to Civil 3D/Map 3D)
