I work on ArcGIS Desktop 10.3.1 and try to move several points so they are corresponding simultaneously to the coordinates value in the attribute table immediately. I know this question repeats in this site and I read those questions and their answers:

I seek for a solution with no python\any code or using the calculate geometry

enter image description here

I also tried to create a feature class in GDB from the shapefile and in order to get automatic update XY fields in the attribute table

Is it possible to do it in some way with GDB or with another way?

  • Only an RDBMS would provide the trigger event support necessary to alter the geometry (and spatial index) on a systematic basis. Then a Query Layer could access the data as geometry in realtime. – Vince Nov 3 '19 at 11:55
  • ok, how to do it? – newGIS Nov 3 '19 at 12:00

    Assuming you don't want to start with a benchmark to choose a software vendor to whom you will then give $$$$, you'd start by installing PostgreSQL and PostGIS, but even those details are too voluminous for an Answer, much less a comment. – Vince Nov 3 '19 at 12:09
  • Can you use ArcPro 2.4? This has a feature like that for databases. – danak Nov 4 '19 at 21:48
  • no, i'm using arcgis 10.3.1 – newGIS Nov 5 '19 at 15:26
