Hi, I am trying to import a shape file (.shp) into ORD and it's not coming in correctly. It's off to the side and quite a distance away from the actual project survey. I have checked the geographical settings for the survey and they are correct. I have also tried changing the scale to no avail.
The shape file is being exported out of QuickCapture which is part of the ARCGis software that we use. I have also exported the .kml which I then imported into Google Earth and it came in correctly (correct road, correct coordinates, etc). For some reason when I try to import the .shp file into the survrd01.dgn I am getting an error and no points. If I create a new, empty file and import the .shp file the points come in. For some reason it does not like the survrd01.dgn.
ERROR: [Definition "Bentley.OgrECPlugin ECRepository Ref File Attachment Data Conversion" queries validation failed.]
I haven't gotten this error before so I am not sure what the issue is.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can send the .shp, .kml and the survrd01.dgn if I need to.
Hey Kathy! Did you find a workout for this? I'm currently in the same boat.
Hi, Richie. We did figure it out. It seems that as long as we start with a new ORD file, making sure the geographic setting are correct. We then import the .shp file and it comes in correctly. After that initial setup the other files come in correctly as well.
