I am using the tabulate area tool to calculate area of habitat types around banding sites. Each site has a unique name, so I used that when selecting my zone_field in the tool. However, when I run tabulate area and open the dbf file in Excel or ArcMap, the field I used as my "zone_field" is blank (see below), even if I use a unique number value like orig_fid when I open the .dbf file it is all 0's instead of the numbers.

Any thoughts? enter image description here
