I am attempting to add a line bearing attribute column to my shapefile in ArcMap. I'm using the Add Geometry Attributes tool to accomplish this. Running this tool is successful, however when I inspect the attribute table, no new fields are added. If I repeat the process, the tool runs successfully again, but this time with a warning:
WARNING 001097: BEARING already exists -- overwriting.
Again, there is no new attribute table field for line bearing.
This is not an issue to my specific dataset. Any polyline shapefile I try this on gets the same result.
If you have experienced this problem, how did you solve it?
