comment Adding GUID field with ArcObjects
Are you getting a result from the AddField method when you perform it? For example, FDO_E_NO_SCHEMA_LICENSE can be returned on failure.

comment Table to Table script fails when copying to SDE
Bit late to respond but I missed this when you posted. Yes, I think it's safe AS LONG AS YOU'RE CAREFUL. It worked for me and it worked for @user172974. Just make sure that you're deleting the right row and only the right row.

comment Why does new feature created not snap to existing feature vertices in ArcGIS 10?
I was hoping that deleting and recreating spatial indexes would help, but it did not work for me; still unable to snap to an added polygon layer using ArcGIS Engine.

comment How can I add an interactive map to a PDF?
But will this work when the user does not have Internet access? That was one of the original requirements, to be able to do this offline.

comment How can I add an interactive map to a PDF?
Is there a way to make ArcGIS Online available offline? That was one of the initial requirements, that the map be available offline.

What is the error in the popup? Also, are there any errors listed for that service in Events?

comment How to display row and column indexes for an image in ArcGIS?
@WafaAlyaari The method that the answer describes is a way to display the X and Y. It embeds that information into each row by adding x and y fields.

comment How do I change the data source for all layers in an MXD?
This seems to not work in 10.1. The data source is changed, but (at least in the case of an SDE connection) the link is changed to a "database connection", i.e. the layer isn't being pointed to any longer, which breaks the link.

comment Where is connection file used to connect ArcMap to ArcSDE?
And, for 10.1 users, they are located in: C:\%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\ESRI\Desktop10.1\ArcCatalog\

comment Where is connection file used to connect ArcMap to ArcSDE?
I am pretty sure the connection information is embedded in the mxd. As for db level changes, anything that breaks their connection could break the SDE user's abilities as well (i.e. don't disable the sde account). Easiest way might be to change the SDE user's password.

comment SDE 10.1 Layers Not Loading in ArcGIS Engine Application
Unfortunately that didn't change anything. I copied the contents of the bin folder to the same path as my executable and there was no change.

Which arcengine folder are you referring to?

comment How can I copy archive data from one server to another?
@blah238 It's possible that replication would help but I have to hope that ESRI has created a better way to migrate data from one server to another than to create a replica, let it synchronize, then break the connection. The intention here is to blow away the 10.0 server when we're done, not to keep it around.

comment arcgis10 filter dataset
Can't figure it out using shapefiles. If this was straight SQL Server, I could make it work, but shapefiles don't seem to like subqueries.

comment Computational time of well-known compression algorithm
Not sure what this has to do with GIS. You might have better luck asking this on stackoverflow.com.

comment Arcpy Performance If Then Statements
@BJEBN That was my understanding as well, that the discussion was related to developing the GUI within ArcMap. I thought that was what you were doing so I thought I'd mention it. Not sure about developing a GUI outside ArcMap, though.

comment Arcpy Performance If Then Statements
@BJEBN Designing your own GUI (via Python, I assume) isn't going to work in AG 10.0 and prior according to this. 10.1 may allow it, though.

comment Merging edited data back into ArcSDE master geodatabase?
Just so you're aware, you can't alter tables via SQL if you're using versioning. ArcGIS won't be able to "see" the changes.

comment Converting KML to layer in ArcGIS 10 - nothing happens
You can always select your own answer as the accepted answer to the question. It "completes" the QA process when you do (plus you get credit, in the form of points, for solving the issue.)

comment Converting KML to layer in ArcGIS 10 - nothing happens
I've never worked with a KML layer in ArcMap, but is it a symbology issue? Perhaps it's not appearing correctly against your background.
