Unable to edit the first row in the attribute table within an edit session if the geometry is NULL

Last Published: April 25, 2020


The first row is not visible in the attribute dialog box when editing if the geometry type is ESRI Spatial Type in Oracle and the first row contains a NULL geometry.


This is a known issue.


Using the ArcSDE spatial functions, update the first row in the business table so the spatial column is no longer NULL.

Use the INSERT command to insert a new feature. For example:

INSERT INTO waterpolys VALUES (st_polygon('polygon ((10000 520000,1
00008889 55000, 1045545983 234280934, 10000 520000))',9));

Refer to the ArcGIS Help for information on creating features using ESRI Spatial Type functions: ArcGIS Help-Working with the Spatial Type
