I am trying to run the Calculate Adjacent Fields ToolBox on one of my Shapefiles, but the process is taking hours to run, and I have yet to complete the process. My table is 18,000 rows, and so far the most I've gotten through was 2,000 after 5 hours. I tried creating and index on the field I want to run the Calculate Adjacent Fields on, (MN_80). But that does not seem to improve performance.

Has anyone run into this issue before, and what were some solutions you found to speed up the process?

    Does your Shapefile have an updated Spatial Index? – klewis Aug 30 '17 at 19:35
  • I did not. I'll give that a try, thanks. – Mwspencer Aug 30 '17 at 20:02
  • That was it, took more like 15 min. Thanks for the suggestion. – Mwspencer Aug 30 '17 at 20:26
