Error: Warning: "The table was not found"

Error Message

This warning occurs in ArcToolbox when trying to convert a geodatabase feature class to a shapefile, if the input feature class contains a Binary Large Object (BLOB) field.

"The table was not found"


Shapefiles and coverages do not support BLOB fields.

Solution or Workaround

  1. Create a temporary feature class using the Feature Class to Geodatabase tool.
  2. Delete the BLOB fields from the temporary feature class.
  3. Convert the temporary feature class to a shapefile, or coverage, using the Geodatabase to Shapefile, or Geodatabase to Coverage tool.
