Error: -137 (SE_INVALID_PART_OFFSET) accessing feature class from ArcInfo Desktop

Error Message

Feature classes, created by registering an Oracle Spatial table with ArcSDE, may fail to display without an error message on the desktop when previewing with ArcCatalog or accessing with ArcMap.

Error -137(SE_INVALID_PART_OFFSET), appears in the $SDEHOME/etc/sde.errlog file each time an attempt to preview or access the feature class is made.


Feature class contains circular arcs, which are not supported by ArcSDE 8.0.2.

Solution or Workaround

Eliminate circular arc features in the feature class.
