I'm encountering an issue where features that I'm copying from a feature class in a file geodatabase are all going to a single subtype when I paste them in the destination feature class in an enterprise geodatabase (Versioned). Subtypes are identical in both feature classes. The paste operation is not honouring the subtype of the original data.
I'm using ArcGIS 10.3.1.
- Start an edit session on a version of an enterprise geodatabase.
- Select 15 features in a file geodatabase feature class called SewerMaintenanceHoles.
- Copy these features and paste them into the corresponding feature class in the enterprise geodatabase. It is also called SewerMaintenanceHoles.
- Because the destination feature class contains a subtype (which is identical to the source feature class subtype), I get the following option when I paste:
You can see in the attribute table the source values are shown and there are 3 different possible values (Maintenance Hole, Maintenance Shaft and TEP). I don't want to paste all the features into a specific subtype. I want the paste to honour the original values in the source feature class. So, I chose the top level (Sewer_Maintenance_Holes). I thought that would paste the features into their corresponding subtype. What is happening instead is that all features are pasting to the default subtype which is Maintenance Hole.
Note, USE is an alias for the Subtype field. But, they're all coming in as Maintenance Hole.
How can I get the original subtype values to come through to the destination feature class?
