Different operations in Spatial Analyst or 3D Analyst result in the following error:
Error in Reading STA table
The ArcInfo workspace in the project's working directory is corrupted and thus ArcView cannot write grids.
An ArcInfo workspace is a directory that contains coverages, grids, or TINs.
ArcView uses your working directory to hold temporary data sets, such as temporary grids generated by editing or analysis tasks.
Solution or Workaround
- Start ArcView, if it is not running already.
- Open the project (.apr) where this error is occurring and activate the Project window.
- Select Properties from the Project menu.
- Get the path specified in the Work Directory field in the Project Properties dialog box. This field may actually use a path defined by an environment variable, such as $HOME.
A. Open a new view.
B. Select Add Theme from the View menu.
C. Replace the path in the Directory field with the environment variable, for example $HOME
D. Press the Enter key.
The Directory field will now show the actual path.
- Clean the workspace.
Delete all folders named after a coverage and/or grid, as well as the info folder.
If you are unsure about deleting a folder, copy it to another location before you delete it.
