An error occurs when converting labels to annotation in ArcMap. This message appears:
"Error converting labels"
This message may or may not be preceded by the following message:
"The annotation group or feature class <annotation class> already exists. Delete all the existing annotation in <annotation class>?"
After the message(s), no labels are converted.
In ArcGIS 8.2 and earlier versions, this error occurs when converting multiple label classes to the same output annotation feature class.
In ArcGIS 8.3 and later versions, this error only occurs when converting multiple label classes to the same existing feature-linked annotation class.
Run the conversion once for each label class, check on only one class at a time, and specify the same target annotation feature class each time through the conversion.
