I´m using arcgis 10.1 and Archydro tools. During the Catchment Polygon Processing, one of the steps used to define the watershed limits, I get the folowing error:

How can I can solve this? Is this a processing limitation? I´m considering a huge área 1.246.700 km².


It appears "C:\Users\ja007\Desktop\Catchment Polygon Processing\Catchment" either doesn't exist or is not a valid input. Are you missing a file extension? It looks like a previous tool was processing "C:\Users\ja007\Desktop\Catchment Polygon Processing\Catchment.shp", so I'm assuming you forgot the .shp extension.

  • the raster is a valid input...the .shp extention is created by arcgis. – user53161 Jul 6 '15 at 15:55

    AddField is the tool that is failing. Are you trying to add a field to a raster? – BruceDoh Jul 6 '15 at 15:59
  • No but I have found the problema.I have changed the pathway to C:\...\Default.gdb\Layers\Catchment, and it works...thank you – user53161 Jul 6 '15 at 16:46
