In ArcGIS 10.1 I am trying to do a Definition Query that will select the records that are the min values from a table.

I try a lot of type of query like and it still not working. Name table is Polygone_Buffer_Output Attribute : Air_Mil

"Air_Mil" = (SELECT MIN( "Air_Mil" ) FROM "Polygone_Buffer_Output"

[Air_Mil] = (SELECT MIN( [Air_Mil] ) FROM "Polygone_Buffer_Output"

[Air_Mil] = (SELECT MIN( [Air_Mil] ) FROM [Polygone_Buffer_Output]

"Air_Mil" in (SELECT MIN( "Air_Mil" ) FROM "Polygone_Buffer_Output"

    What type of table (file, arcsde, dBase, personal) are you using? – PolyGeo Jul 3 '13 at 20:49
  • It's with file i'm not able to run my query. But in personal GDB i can execute the query with the advice of CLJ – user19717 Jul 30 '13 at 15:40

"Air_Mil" in (SELECT MIN( "Air_Mil" ) FROM Polygone_Buffer_Output

or

[Air_Mil] in (SELECT MIN( [Air_Mil] ) FROM Polygone_Buffer_Output

using square brackets or quotes depends on your underlying database implementation.

  • Thanks, it's run with GDB but when it's only a shapefile a didn't find the way to execute my query – user19717 Jul 30 '13 at 15:42
  • Did you try both methods? What message did you get back from ArcGIS when you were trying to query shapefiles? – CLJ Jul 30 '13 at 16:28
  • It's telling me "There was a problem selecting", "An invalid SQL statement was used." Yes i try both methods and many other. Have you already able to make a query of this kind on a shapefile outside of GDB ? – user19717 Jul 31 '13 at 16:25
