Translation writing to ArcGIS File Geodatabase completes successfully. In ArcGIS applications, Open Attribute Table of Esri File Geodatabase yields:

"Could not load data from the data source. If you can correct the problem, press the refresh button to reload the data. Possible problems can include bad network connection, invalid fields, etc..."


Esri's File Geodatabase has a number of reserved words that cannot be used for table, feature class, and attribute names. Please view the reserved words list.

Solution & Workaround

If possible, restrain from using these keywords for a table name or use "_" either start or end of the name.

If you require additional assistance, please contact support.
