Bug: Metadata is not included when importing data to and exporting data from ArcSDE
When importing or exporting data into ArcSDE, the metadata does not get imported.
This is a known issue.
There are two workarounds for this issue.
- Use the "(multiple)..." option instead of the "(single)..." option in ArcCatalog when importing or exporting into ArcSDE.
- Export the metadata to an XML file and import it into the newly imported ArcSDE feature class.
