I have a geodatabase with a feature class that has several domains attached to various attributes in the table. A couple of the attribute have very long domains associated with them, where much of the data is not used any more. For example: one of the fields is for the data observer; we currently only need four of the people listed and not the entire list of all the data collectors for the past 12 years (which is like 30 people). It would be much more convenient to just be able to have a shorter drop down list for the field data collectors.
Open the GeoDataBase properties, select the Domain Tab.
Find the Domain Name in question - remove the names you no longer want to include in the list
go into the GDB properties, select the Domain Tab.
- Create a new Domain
- add the values you desire
- assign the newly created domain to the appropriate attribute field within the desired feature class
