Error: One or more layers failed to draw: General Function Failure [Feature Class] Syntax error in query expression...
When attempting to zoom or identify on a particular feature class in ArcMap, the following error message may be displayed:
"One or more layers failed to draw: General Function Failure [Feature Class Name] Syntax error in query expression'(<Feature Class>.OBJECTID = <Feature Class>_Shape_Index.IndexedObjectId and MaxGX >='X' and MinGX <='X' and MaxGY >='Y' amd MinGY <='Y')'"
There may be more than one reason why this message occurs. One possible reason is that the name of the feature class begins with a number.
Solution or Workaround
Rename the feature class to begin with a character rather than a number.
