Warning: Create output feature class failed

Last Published: April 25, 2020

Error Message

When converting multiple datasets with similar names (mydata_polyline, mydata_polyline_1), the first dataset is converted, then warning message occurs and subsequent datasets are not converted.


If the names are the same, except for the numeric suffix, both outputs may be assigned the same default name. The first conversion will be successful, but the second will fail since the output name is already in use.

Solution or Workaround

Make each of the output names in the batch grid unique.
