I would like to create many line from a point feature, or a table (I created the feature with 'Display XY Data'). I was using 'points to line', but it works only for a single line. In the point feature I have a field where is described for each point to which line it correspont. But if I put this lineID in the 'Line_Field', it says me:

ERROR 000972: Table must have Object IDs in order to be sorted.

but the table has the ObjectID, and if I let the 'Line_Field' empty it works but than I have only a line.

  • Although you have an ObjectID field it's not an OID field.. it's not enough for it to just be there it has to be recognized as an OID which CSV files don't support. Import the CSV into a geodatabase table and an OID field will be created then you should be able to sort the table. – Michael Stimson Feb 4 '19 at 7:58
  • Ty, now it works, but then I don't understand why to connect all the points with a line it works without ObjectID and for many lines it need it. – tera santa Feb 4 '19 at 8:18
