When I clip PolylineMZ feature class inside a Personal Geodatabase it gives odd results for vertices.

Vertices are horizontally shifted and do not corespond with original.

When I do this in .shp, results are fine.

Any ideas what is wrong?

Have you checked projections etc? – Hairy Dec 9 '11 at 9:43
A screenshot comparing the bad clip with the good clip might help. – Chad Cooper Dec 9 '11 at 15:39
How large is the shift in coordinates? – Jeff Berry Dec 9 '11 at 18:35
I did face this issue couple of times already. However, I can not reconstruct it now, to show the shift. All is fine now. I assume it could be the projection as I did change it before (there is some inconsistance for polish spatial reference at ESRI, as in general ESRI base their spatial reference for polish "92"on ETRS and ESRI Poland do have ETRF, or other way around, not sure now). When I'll have couple spear minutes I'll have a closer look to make sure that Hairy's question is an actual answer. Thanks guys. – Tomek Dec 13 '11 at 7:35
