000953: Extent of the overlay operation will be empty.


No output features will be created

This error can be caused by the following:

  • The extents of the input feature classes do not have a common area. Since the extents do not overlap, the output extent cannot be properly set and no features can be generated in the output.
  • The input has no input features. In the Feature To Line tool, no output features can be created when there are no input features.


If the input has no features, this is the expected result.

To run the tool even if the extents of the inputs do not overlap, set the Extent environment to Union of Inputs temporarily.
