I have created a previous domain with the same user login in ArcGIS 10.3. I wanted to add a coded value to this domain and, have the new addition show up on the drop-down options in the attributes when I add a new feature. I am able to add it to the domain. The issue is the addition is not showing up in the attributes when the new feature is created.

I have tried just plain open the properties in the gdb and add the addition to the domain. I have tried to use the tool "Add Coded Value To Domain". The addition is not showing up in the attrubutes. I have tried to convert the domain to a table and than table to domain, new domain name. This worked but, when I changed the field domain to this new domain, no drop-down is shown when editing this field for a new feature.

  • Have you tried taking the domain off the field, then adding it back? – recurvata Mar 3 '15 at 18:24
  • Yes I have even tried to taking that domain off of every field that it was selected for, before I edited that domain. – ARyanEnviro Mar 3 '15 at 18:28
  • How about taking the domain off all fields, recreating it and setting fields again? Or am I misunderstanding that you've already done that? Maybe compressing the database after deleting the domain and before adding it back would clean up stray references. Worth a try. – recurvata Mar 3 '15 at 18:37
  • That worked. Thank you recurvata. So, this is what I did to make it work. Turn off domain in all fields, which I did before. Then use "Domain to Table", which I did before. Then delete the domain completely, which I did not do, to nervous to do so previously. Then used "Table to Domain", which I previously did. I did not have to compress the database to get the change in the domain to work. Thanks again. – ARyanEnviro Mar 3 '15 at 19:02
