Checking data out to AXF causes a crash if the maximum number of fields and/or number of characters in field names is reached

Last Published: April 25, 2020


If a feature class exceeds the maximum number of fields and/or the maximum number of characters in the field names when checking data out to AXF format using the ArcPad Data Manager toolbar, ArcMap crashes for some users.


This is a known size limitation of 255 field characters in the AXF file, which is a limitation of Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition.


Create a new field and limit the name to 254 characters or less.
