Error: Cannot process a Shape layer as a selected set when using the Data Delivery Extension

Error Message

Using an ArcIMS HTML Viewer integrated with the Data Delivery Extensions (DDE), when clicking the DDE button to translate a request, the following error message appears:

"WARNING: Cannot process a Shape layer as a selected set".

The translation request cannot be performed.

Cause

This is a limitation of the software. For features selected from a Shape layer, no translation can be performed.

This error does not occur if features are selected based on feature layers from a personal geodatabase or ArcSDE.

Solution or Workaround

In the Viewer, clear the selection and click the DDE button to have the data extracted and translated.

Note:
For more information, refer to "Performing a Translation" within the "Using DDE for ArcIMS" section of the "ArcIMS Data Delivery Extension (DDE) Reference Manual" found in Chapter 8, page 109. A link to the manual is available in the Related Information section below.
