Error: Feature table has error - Unable to make theme

Error Message

This error occurs when adding a PC ARC/INFO coverage as a theme to a view, on a UNIX platform:

"feature table has error - unable to make theme."


The UNIX command 'mv' was used to copy the coverage to a new directory on a UNIX machine across the network.

Solution or Workaround

Use the UNIX command 'cp' to copy the coverage instead of the 'mv' command. Since the coverage is a directory, you must copy recursively. The following is the correct syntax used to copy recursively.

cp -r <coverage_name> <path/coverage_name>

Do not rename the coverage.
