Problem: Unable to apply ground direction corrections with the Ground to Grid Correction tool

Description

When working with a parcel fabric, attempting to manually enter a ground direction offset value using DMS (Degrees Minutes Seconds) units in the 'Ground to Grid Correction' tool from the COGO toolbar fails. The 'OK' button in the 'Correction - Step 1' dialog box is unavailable.

Cause

The directional units defined do not match the units of the current input. For example, if the directional units are defined as Decimal Degrees (DD), but the user input for ground to grid correction is in DMS, the correction cannot be applied. For more information, refer to ArcGIS Help: Using the Ground to Grid Correction dialog box.

Solution or Workaround

To resolve this issue, select one of the following options below:

  • Use the same directional units defined for the parcel fabric

    To determine the type of directional units used for the dataset, in the data frame, right-click and open Data Frame Properties > select the General tab. Use the same directional units defined for the dataset when using the Ground to Grid Correction tool.
