Symptoms

After using the Dynamic Segmentation command, some or all of the resulting DynSeg query records have the following Status1 value:


Unable to locate event.  One or more wrong type fields are found in the event recordset.

Diagnosis

 After creating a Dynamic Segmentation query, no geometry is created. Reviewing the DynSeg query in a data window the Status1 values show the error:  "Unable to locate event.  One or more wrong type fields are found in the event recordset".  Most likely there is a mismatch between the unit of measure defined for the event data and the values found in the event fields.

Solution

Check the unit of measure assigned in the coordiante system used the event data.  Use Dynamic Segmentation command to create another DynSeg query and this time use the Event Properties to review the coodinate system assigned to the event data. Ensure that the Coordinate System, Units and Formats are correctly defined to match the event data.  For example the error will occur if attempt to dynseg coordinate events where the latitude and longitude values are stored in Degrees but the Geographic unit of measure is set to DD.MMSS in the coordinate system.
