Output feature cannot be dissolved into inputs because of memory limitations

Last Published: April 25, 2020

Description

Output feature <OID> cannot be dissolved into inputs because of memory limitations.

Cause

There is not enough RAM installed on the computer to process the dissolve.

See the link in the Related Information section below for general information about determining how many vertices the computer can process.

Solution or Workaround



  • Install more RAM on the computer.
  • Free up resources on the computer. For example:
    - Close all unnecessary software applications and services.
    - Delete all unnecessary files from the system's temporary directory.
    - Defragment the harddrive(s).
    - If used, compact the personal geodatabase.
  • Post-process the data sets. For example, run dissolve once, generalize the data, then run dissolve again.
