Topic: Logical Split: Failed to update history table

On checking through the user guide I tried a logical split. This failed with the message "Split operation failed. Failed to update history table".

I went back to use an older version of the data. This time I didn't get this error but while it looked like it was doing a split in the end the split didn't happen.

Re: Logical Split: Failed to update history table

How long does the tool spend attempting to perform the split?  You could try amending the 'Timeout' setting in the options window - change it to 60 secs to see if that makes any difference as it could be the tool is experiencing performance issues when using MS Access.

If that doesn't sort it then it may be some underlying data error - in which case I'll need an up-to-date copy of the data you are using to debug this any further.

Hi Andy

I tried it again and this time after a few seconds the "failed to update incid_mm_polygons table" message appeared.
