no, I have not seen that message yet. But searching in www gives that results >>>click<<<, have you seen them?
What I could imagine is that either the structure of the SDF has defects, that could be tried to repair by using _MAPIMPORT and _MAPEXPORT, just to test the data and create a new (purged) dataset (don't forget the attributive data to import/export using Map3D Object Data).
Another idea is to start _MAPOPTIONS ==> tab "System" and clean the cache.
Good luck, - alfred -
I use the MAPIMPORT and _MAPEXPORT as you have mentioned...I am working in AutoCad 2012.
I do not see a clean cache in the System tab...any idea where I might be missing this
Thank you for reseponding
>> I do not see a clean cache in the System tab
I can only show a screenshot with the German UI, start command _MAPOPTIONS and try to follow that:
HTH, - alfred -
We had another user ask about this many years ago...after narrowing it down, it was determined to be an issue specific to a certain machine and Windows user account. So here are some things you might try:
Let us know if something resolves the issue for you.
And thanks Alfred for your suggestions - the clearing cache might be the solution here! Let's see...
I get that message all the time, (using oracle or ArcSDE connections). What clears it for me, is to go into data connect, and disconnect from the fdo data source or sdf in your case, and then reconnect. Then on your layer in display manager right click and refresh. This generally happens when a server reboot has been done or your connection has been lost. Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn't. If that doesn't work.
