I'm using ArcGIS 10.1 with ArcPad 10.0. I am trying to learn how to use the check-out and check-in functionality with a file geodatabase.
The database I'm has 13 feature classes in it, most of which are empty because I'm just starting with this project. The ones that have data are things like the project area, the survey grid, and a transect line.
When I use the 'Get Data for ArcPad' tool on the ArcPad Data Manager toolbar and try to set the action for all the layers I choose 'Checkout all Geodatabase layers and copyout all other layers'. The problem is that only the line and polygon layers are listed as being checked out:
All the other layers, which are points, are listed as being exported as background data as shapefiles. All of these feature classes are in the same database, with the same projection. What is going on with this tool that I can't checkout the other layers?
The option to checkout the point layers isn't even available under action.
Here are the options for the Project Area (polygon) layer:
And here are the options for the Misc_Point layer (point), note that the option for 'Check Out for disconnected editing in ArcPad' is totally missing here:
Any help is appreciated!
