Error: Navigating to an input raster in the Reclassify dialog box of the Spatial Analyst causes 'Fatal Error'

Error Message

Navigating to an input raster in the Reclassify dialog box of the Spatial Analyst causes a fatal error.

Cause

If a colormap is associated with the input raster dataset, and the default field is a string, navigating to such a dataset in the Reclassify dialog will cause a fatal error in ArcGIS 8.1.

Solution or Workaround

This problem has been addressed in ArcGIS Version 8.1.2.

For previous versions, add the raster dataset as a layer to ArcMap before opening the Reclassify dialog box. Then, use the layer as the input raster for the Reclassify function.
