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.
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.
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.
