Problem: Adding XY data from a table that has another table joined to it in ArcMap fails

Description

Attempting to generate a feature layer using the 'Add XY data' tool fails if the XY table has another table joined to it.

Cause

This is a known issue.

Solution or Workaround

This issue has been resolved in ArcGIS Version 8.1.2.

In ArcGIS 8.1:

  1. Remove all joins from the table.
  2. Create the layer.
  3. Join the table to the new layer.

    Note:
    If your data is in an ArcSDE server, and is registered with the geodatabase, this problem will still occur.
