During the process of enabling the Local Government Information Model (LGIM) on an existing 10.1 SP1 parcel fabric, the following error message may be received if there is a conflict with an existing field using a different data type in the existing parcel fabric schema:
"Field error: Field: FloorDesignator has incorrect type on table ParcelFabric_Parcels.
Field type should be small integer."
Error during Enabling the Local Government Information model on a 10.1 sp1 parcel fabric.
In the process of enabling the LGIM, a FloorDesignator field is added as an integer data type. If a FloorDesignator field already exists in the parcel fabric with a different data type (text, for example), the process fails.
Since there is a conflict in trying to create this field with a different data type, the field must be deleted to enable the LGIM on the parcel fabric. If this field is currently being used to store data, it is recommended to temporarily populate the data from this field to a newly created field using the Field Calculator, delete the FloorDesignator field and try enabling the Local Government Information Model again.
