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. In an error attribute table, you can see information about the network feature the error is associated with; an ID and description of the error; and, if applicable, the other feature participating in the invalid situation.
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.
- Ensure the utility network and related layers are added to an active map view.
- Expand the Utility Network layer in the Contents pane.
- Right-click the Line Errors, Point Errors, or Polygon Errors sublayer.
You can now view and explore the Line Errors, Point Errors, and Polygon Errors sublayers.
- 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 Utility network error IDs.
Understand error feature attributes
The following table lists the fields in each error feature class, a description of each, and example values:

Origin global ID
The global ID of one of the features participating in the error situation.
Destination Network Source ID
The feature class name of the other feature participating in the error situation.
Destination global ID
