Is there any way to create more complex conditional domains in a table than a single subtype and associated domains? I would like to get the same functionality that more than one subtype in a single table would provide but ArcGIS only allows one. I want to be able to use multiple domains in one field that are part of a subtype, where each domain might only allow other domains used in the next field.

Any ideas?

Not sure where your idea fits in among these, but there are several out on the ArcGIS Ideas site you might want to vote for:

  1. Allow subtypes on multiple fields
  2. Requesting a Sub-Subtype Option
  3. Coded value domains set mulit-level dependancy on coded value domains for a feature class

That's pretty much what I want to do. Subtypes are so handy. I just wish there wasn't the limit. – Andy Brown Feb 23 '13 at 4:35
