Problem: Adding a DGN produces a Segmentation Violation
The first attempt to add a DGN file as a theme returns a Segmentation Violation, but the second attempt works without an error.
The DGN file contains tag elements that don't have a value type defined.
Use Microstation 95 to define a value type for the tag, as instructed below.
Solution or Workaround
- Click Tags under the Element menu, then Define.
- On the Tag Set dialog box, select a tag under the Tags list and click the Edit button.
- If the Type drop down list is blank, specify either Character, Integer, or Real.
- Repeat steps one to three for each tag and save the file.
The ArcView Help, under the 'CAD Drawings and ArcView feature classes,' states that tag elements are not supported.
