Unable to edit or update FGDB geometry

by Technical Evangelist on ‎06-17-2016 02:00 PM (684 Views)

Symptoms

We have a read-write File GeoDatabase connection in GeoMedia but attempts to update or change existing geometry results in errors.

Diagnosis

If use Validate Connectivity command to Auto correct problems the following error occurs:


An error occurred while trying to write a fixed geometry back to the database.
Cannot update. Review connection parameters to allow overwriting Measure value with 0.

 

If use Edit Geometry the error simply states:


Cannot update. Review connection parameters to allow overwriting Measure value with 0.

 

The errors seem to only occur when editing or updating existing geometry. New geometry and attributes for new feature records can be inserted using the Insert Feature command without any errors.

Solution

Use the Manage Data > Warehouse > Warehouse Connections command to invoke the Warehouse Connections dialog. On the connections dialog, select the File GeoDatabase Read-Write connection by clicking the row selector (left side) for the FGDB connection. Once the connection has been selected, you can select the Properties button. Enable (check) the option to Overwrite geometry containing measure values.

Enabling the Overwrite geometry containing measure values allows the GeoMedia to automatically update FGDB measure attribute fields such as "Shape_Length as update to the geometry occurs.
