I have inherited a project where part of the workflow is the execution of numerous FME Workbench files. It has worked flawlessly for several hundred runs, but it gets tripped up on a very large shapefile(actual shp is 1586981264 bytes, dbf is 51949349 bytes
Type: Polygon ).
Number of Shapes: 775361
Corrupt Shape file '<shapefilepath>' encountered -- record size 218972988 is invalid
ArcCatalog and shpinfo.exe have no trouble with it.
Based on some google searches, I think the issue is with the size of the shapefile but this might be outdated information: http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/fme/conversations/topics/3031 http://evangelism.safe.com/tag/google/
Is there a way to configure FME to allow for larger shapefiles?
