Share a table

You can share a stand-alone table, or multiple tables, to ArcGIS Online or an ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7 or later portal. You must be signed in to ArcGIS Pro with an active ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise account, and your account must have the privilege to publish hosted feature layers.

Supported stand-alone table formats include file geodatabase and other table formats used in ArcGIS Pro, such as .dbf, .xlsx, and .csv.

You may see formatting changes when a shared table is added to a web map, such as the following examples:

  • Numeric fields display only two decimal places.
  • Numeric fields have thousands separators.
  • Null fields are formatted as blank fields.
  • Some fields may not be displayed by default.

Share a table using the default configuration

When you add a stand-alone table to a map or scene in your ArcGIS Pro project, you can share it from the Contents pane. This workflow explains how to share a stand-alone table using default settings. To change the default configuration, see Configure a table.

  1. In the Contents pane, right-click the stand-alone table to share, point to Sharing, and click Share As Table Share As Table.

    The Share As Table pane appears.

  2. In the Share As Table pane, on the General tab, under Item Details, accept the default name or replace it with a new name.
  3. Complete the Summary and Tags fields.

    You can enter a maximum of 128 tags.

  4. Under Location, choose a folder in your portal content in which to store the table. Optionally create a folder.

    Click the Browse button Browse to browse to a folder in your portal content. You can also type a folder name in the text box.

  5. Under Share with, specify how the web layer will be shared:
    • Everyone—Share your content with the public. Anyone can access and see it.
    • My Organization—Share your content with all authenticated users in the organization.
    • Groups—Share your content with groups to which you belong and their members.

    Leave all options unchecked to set the sharing level to the owner of the item.

  6. Optionally, click the Content tab to see the table located within the portal folder structure.
