- When inserting features into a table or feature class, fields that are not assigned values (that is, no attribute exists on the feature for that field) will be assigned a null value if the field allows null values. However, when updating existing fields, if no attribute exists on the feature for that field, the field will not be modified.
If memory runs out while writing to annotation feature classes, try setting the
TRANSACTION_TYPEto Transactions or Edit Sessions. Doing this will restrict the number of annotation features stored locally before they are flushed to the database.
Note: Using transactions can negatively affect performance. For more information on how to improve performance, see Improving the Speed of Writing using the Geodatabase Writer.
- When writing to Geodatabase, if your translation fails with the ArcObjects message number of -2147216072 (FDO_E_SE_DB_IO_ERROR), there may be several reasons for this, such as:
- The database that you are writing to may be out of space.
- One of the values that you are trying to insert is too large for the underlying database to handle.
- One of the values is too large for the data type specified. Try changing the data types of your columns.
- One of your column names is invalid, possibly due to characters that are not considered capitalized. Try renaming the faulty column.
