Additional Information

Using a Database Connection provides the ability for overwriting the output. In a future release, the tool will provide a better indication that the tool does not run successfully in this scenario.


Use a database connection instead of a database server connection. 1. Right-click the enterprise geodatabase in the Catalog tree > Save Connection. 2. Use the database connection as the output location of the Feature Class To Feature Class tool.
