This workflow describes the steps that can be used to apply a coded value domain to a field within a feature class using the Field Calculator.
In some cases, it is desirable to apply the description (i.e., red) of a coded value domain to multiple records within a field at one time. Rather than taking the time to apply each domain value for each individual record, the Field Calculator can be used to save time.
In this scenario, it is assumed that a domain has already been applied to the field to which assign values to. The domain has the following attributes:
Domain Name: Color
Field Type: Long Integer
Domain Type: Coded Values
Code:0 Description: Blue
Code:1 Description: Red
Code:2 Description: Green
A quick tour of attribute domains
Keep in mind that the field type of the field must match the field type of the domain.
