Problem: Unable to edit data in related tables with the Attribute Editor in ArcMap
Cannot edit data in the related table using the Attribute Editor after setting up a relate in ArcMap.
Data with relates cannot be edited using the Attribute Editor.
Solution or Workaround
There are two possible solutions.
- If the data belongs to the same geodatabase, create a relationship class.
For more information on creating relationship classes, see ArcGIS Desktop Help > Contents > Working with geodatabases > Defining relationship classes.
Relationship Classes can only be created with ArcEditor and ArcInfo licenses.
- Select a record in the Table Window. Find and update related records by clicking Options > Related Tables in the Table Window. This command will open the related table if it is added to ArcMap and will allow for selection of records in related tables.
