When making an SDE layer visible in ArcIMS Author, the layer does not display. If Author's Message Console is turned on (View > Message Level is set to All), the following error is displayed:
SE_COORD_OUT_OF_BOUNDS: The specified coordinate exceeds the valid coordinate range
Features in the SDE layer are extending beyond the defined extent envelope of the SDE layer.
Solution or Workaround
If you are getting this error, the following two SDE commands will likely display different extent envelope values:
> sdelayer -o describe_long
> sdelayer -o stats
One way to resolve this problem is to use the following SDE command to alter the extent envelope:
> sdelayer -o alter -E calc
See the ArcSDE documentation for further details on how to use these commands.
