Data export to geodatabas

Recommended Posts

Dear List

I have a wired behaviour from Arcmap 10.1. I have a geodatabase layer that has a join to an excel table with (show only matching records) that contains about 56 records. When I try to export this layer to a new geodatabase layer I am returned with a featureclass of 0 records in it. I have no query defenitions or selections affecting the source layer. I am running editor level license. Hope anybody have an explanation for this.

Hi alqamy,


No sure about your issue but I can suggest you some tricks with your excel table like below.


If in your table you have field like:

City Name

Replace with:




2016 Population




Don't use space but underscore and no special characters.

sometimes you can experience errors depending of the office version..

arcgis 10.1 had some errors with xlsx files like you can read in those articles :




here you can download the add-on of office assuring the compatibility with your arcgis version



let me know if it works
