I am making an inventory of the field names, aliases and their data types to get an overview of my entire geodatabase. I want to therefore copy them to excel.

It works on ArcMap.

However, I cannot copy aliases easily.

The format I want is in ArcGIS Pro's design table but I cannot cop it.

Any suggestions?

  • You could do this using ArcPy. – PolyGeo Aug 10 '18 at 9:20
  • You mean copying the fields to excel? It is a lot of overhead because a) I have to learn ArcPY b) I have to write the code to ensure it matches with the rows of the old gdb field names. If I can just do it manually, I can control this and also have an overview of the work as i am doing it. It is a simple copy-paste which would make life easier but ArcGIS Pro has it grayed out :'( – April Aug 10 '18 at 9:31

The ability to copy the table does not exist as yet. You would need to script this in python as suggested by @PolyGeo. Of cause such a request for this functionality has been suggested over on GeoNet as an ArcGIS Idea titled ArcGIS Pro - Export Fields Table. I suggest you up-vote it to encourage ESRI to develop such functionality.
