I am working on a project for a client, they gave us some data from their oracleDB, and when I connect to it in arc map I can just drag and drop the tables from the catalog window into arcmap and they are drawn.
Now we have a bunch of legal deeds that I then extract the data from using OCR, then from the text I programmatically create a shape file and insert it into a table in the same database. However when I drag that table(which is in the same DB with the data they gave me, which I can just drag and drop to draw) I get the warning that says "Could not add the specified data object to the map", and it is not drawn. However when I right click on the table from the arc catalog window and hit create layer, then save the layer, then add the layer from that file that was just created, everything works fine and it is drawn.
Am I missing something? Or is something not set up properly. I would like to have the ability to drag and drop for the client as their data does that they already have.
I admit I am very new to acrGIS and the esri suite, this is the first gig I have been exposed to it, and I feel like I'm missing something simple and dumb. I've tried googling but haven't found a solution that works.
