Problem: ArcToolbox Project wizard does not display geographic transformations

Description

ArcToolbox Project wizard does not display geographic transformations (datum) when trying to reproject shapefiles or geodatabase feature classes, when one or more are known to exist.

Cause

The geographic coordinate system of the input data doesn't match the equivalent geographic coordinate system for the predefined geographic transformations.

Solution or Workaround

This issue has been addressed in ArcGIS Version 8.1.2.

In ArcMap 8.1.1, reproject the data on-the-fly:

  1. Open the Data Frame Properties dialog box
    [O-Image] Data Frame Properties Tab (General)

  2. Switch to the Coordinate System tab.
  3. Click Transformations.
  4. Select the appropriate transformation in the Using dropdown list.
  5. Click OK.
