FAQ: Why does the attribute selection data not find features?

Question

Why does the attribute selection data not find features?

Answer

This problem is addressed in ArcGIS 8.1 Service Pack 1. See the Related Information section to download this pack.

The Attribute selection of ArcSDE for Coverages data does not find any feature for a selected string from the list box.

If the string contains two or more consecutive spaces, the query sent will eliminate all but one space.

Workaround: Other selection methods can be used to find the desired attribute if you know that the string contains consecutive spaces.
