Question

Why does the SE_shape_generate_buffer function fail with a -1 SE_FAILURE when the x, y units are set to 1000000?

Answer

The SE_shape_generate_buffer function returns a -1 when the x,y units are set to 1000000. This is caused by an internal four-integer unit that is collapsing the polygons.

To work around this problem, use a different system unit value when creating the data.

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