Generate SDCX Index (Business Analyst)

Available with Business Analyst license.

Summary

Creates an index for a Statistical Data Collection (SDCX). The index will improve performance when using the custom data in analysis tools such as Enrich Layer.

Usage

  • A Statistical Data Collection must exist before you can generate an index.

  • The index must be rebuilt if there are changes to the feature class that references the .sdcx file or if there are changes to the .sdcx file.

  • Three files, with the extensions .ppi, .ddi, and .pdi.prj, are created when the SDCX index is generated. These three files have the same name as the Input SDCX File.
