I'm trying to copy/clone a feature class within the same file gdb using C#. I've figured out that this won't work with IDataset or IFeatureDataset. So far I only found IGeoDBDataTransfer.Transfer but this is for copying between different workspaces.

Copying and pasting geodatabase datasets ArcObjects 10.1

I know I could do the whole things with a featureBuffer, but that's a very long winded way. And I don't want to use geoprocessing like CopyFeatures. Yeah, I know I'm fussy ;-)

If any of you got an idea how to get round this I would very much appreciate it!

Many Thanks in advance!

If you do it manually esri automatically appends an _1 to the table names. two tables can't live in the same schema with the same name. – Brad Nesom Mar 14 '13 at 18:12
