I have a process that I follow where I import from XML into a Personal Geodatabase (PGDB), do some checks and updates, and then load into an enterprise GDB.
Now after I've imported from XML I currently have to copy/paste all the feature classes into another PGDB in order for the attribute fields to be editable. If I try to edit them in the first PGDB, after they've been imported from XML, I just get messages along the lines of "field not editable"
When I right-click > Properties on one of the fields, the Field Properties dialog shows the field as being Read Only, and the option is disabled so I don't seem to be able to change it.
So, how can I either a) make the Import XML Workspace Document import as not read-only, or failing that b) make all my fields writable after doing the import, without having to copy all the feature classes first?
Running ArcGIS 10.7.1. I have also tried doing the import into a File GDB with the same result.
