Error: Input shapefile is invalid
Using the Shapefile to DXF conversion utility in ArcToolbox returns the following error message:
"<path to shapefile> does not have an associated dBASE file. Input shapefile is invalid."
A folder in the path to the shapefile has a period in its name.
Solution or Workaround
There are two options to resolve this issue.
- Remove the period from the directory name.
- Move the shapefile to a directory without a period in the name.
