View error features

There are three types of error features used to track inconsistent features in a utility network: point errors, line errors, and polygon errors. These features reside in the Point Error, Line Error, and Polygon Error feature classes. The classes are grouped under the utility network layer in the Contents pane.

To learn more about error features, see Error features.

Access error feature attributes

To access error feature classes, the utility network layer must be present in the Contents pane. If it is not, add it to your active map from the Catalog pane. Your utility network layer will include the name specified during the creation of the utility network concatenated by Utility Network.

  1. Expand the Utility Network layer in the Contents pane.
  2. Right-click the Line Errors, Point Errors, or Polygon Errors sublayer.
  3. Click Attribute table to open the attribute table associated with the layer.

See the table below to understand the values in the table. To learn more about fixing error features and to view a list of error numbers and error situation descriptions, see Error feature management.
