I am trying to use an access database with geographic information in ArcCatalog. I created the database as a .accdb and backsaved to a .mdb format. I can create a 'shapefile', but not a 'File and Personal Geodatabase feature classes'. The error I get is:
There was an error trying to process this table.
The table was not found. [GDB_ObjectClasses]
The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot find the input table or query 'GDB_ObjectClasses'. Make sure it exists and that its name is spelled correctly.
I can bring the table into arc, create a shapefile, but when I try to use any tools (specifically kriging) I get a similar error.
I don't see any connections, relationships, anything in the access table itself. I've tried bringing the data out into Excel, copying and pasting in a new excel with no formatting and then bringing it back into access and I get the same errors. I don't think it is the dataset because of this. I am using 10.5.1. Any suggestions?
