I would like to check out data from an SDE database but for performance sake, i prefer to delete all features outside of my survey area.
i've tried to copy features in area from sde to a file GDB then checkout , but the checkin could not be perfect, because i can only synchronize new added features to sde database. so i cannot synchronize modified or deleted features.
i've tried to checkout directly from sde Database then delete all features outside area using Bounding box query , but it take much time once i start arcpad after checkout.
i'm using Arcpy to checkin and checkout.
Any help please.
