I'm having trouble registering a table with a Geodatabase in an SDE, the option is greyed out. This is a weekly task for me and I have never had this happen before.

I receive a new table weekly from our accounts department and have to check if there is any new entities in it to add to my parcel database. When I right click on the table and go to mange the option to register with database is greyed out.

I checked for locks on the table and there are none. I previewed the table and it appears to be the same as every week

I am the only one working off the database at the moment, has anyone run into similar problems before? Any suggestions on things to try?

  • try using the register with enterprise geodatabase geoprocessing tool. Read the error message in the gp results messages.

Well in the end it was completely user error. After geoprocessing the table every week I need to delete it, for whatever reason I forgot to delete the table the previous week meaning it was still registered with the geodatabase.

In the end I deleted the table and will have to wait till next week to run the scripts on it!
