Error: An error occurred exporting the table. Field type is invalid or unsupported for the operation.

Error Message

An error occurred exporting the table. The field type is invalid or unsupported for the operation.

Cause

This error can occur when exporting a table to dBASE format in ArcMap. If the source table, for example an OLE DB table, includes a field defined as data type BLOB, this operation will fail. dBASE does not support BLOB data types.

Solution or Workaround

Remove fields defined as a BLOB data type.
