Question

Can ArcSDE command line tools be used to load data into a Feature Dataset?

Answer

ArcSDE command line tools for loading data, such as shp2sde and cov2sde, cannot be used to load data into a Feature Class that is contained within a Geodatabase Feature Dataset.

Only an ArcObjects application, such as ArcCatalog, ArcMap, and custom-built ArcObjects applications, can be used to load data into a Feature Class contained within a Geodatabase Feature Dataset.
