Error: Navigating to an input raster in the Reclassify dialog box of the Spatial Analyst causes 'Fatal Error'
Navigating to an input raster in the Reclassify dialog box of the Spatial Analyst causes a fatal error.
If a colormap is associated with the input raster dataset, and the default field is a string, navigating to such a dataset in the Reclassify dialog will cause a fatal error in ArcGIS 8.1.
Solution or Workaround
This problem has been addressed in ArcGIS Version 8.1.2.
For previous versions, add the raster dataset as a layer to ArcMap before opening the Reclassify dialog box. Then, use the layer as the input raster for the Reclassify function.
