Frequently asked question

Why don't tables appear in ArcCatalog when using a ODEDB connection?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


If a connection is successful but no tables appear, the provider does not support the IDBSchemaRowset interface. ArcGIS requires this interface to browse a workspace.

The provider can still be used programmatically but will not be able to browse a workspace for tables/views.
