Bug BUG-000099988


Field alias names are missing from the Block Points layer in the Business Analyst 2015 dataset.

Additional Information


Alternate Solution

The missing field aliases of the 'Block Points' BDS layer is found in BA_2015.gdb, located under <a href="file:C:/ArcGIS/Business" target="_blank">C:\ArcGIS\Business</a> Analyst\Data\Demographic Data, and add Esri_block.gdb.

However, this is not in BDS format. To turn this layer into a BDS layer follow the steps mentioned below:

1. Add a Field (ID) to the point feature class.

2. Use the field calculator to copy over the ObjectID to the ID field.

3. Export the attribute table of the point feature class as a geodatabase table.

4. Use the Business Analyst Custom Data Setup wizard to create the BDS layer.
