Hi All,

I am updating few values in ArcSDE Geodatabase (in flat table) using FME workbench but its giving an below error

error : Error while retrieving an ArcObjects update cursor for the table/feature class ''. The error number from ArcObjects is: '-2147220652'. The error message from ArcObjects is: {}

  • Stack  : FME workbench 2021.1 , ArcSDE Geodatabase, Flat table ,MS Sql Server
  • Workbench screenshot : 
  • Error message : 


  • Feature writer properties
  • Till now tried below :
    • Using SQL query its possible to update values in SQL management studio with sde use
    • SDE user has privilege to insert/modify/delete 
    • Workbench has proper permissions to run it
    • Using ArcPro Standard licenses 
    • If we truncate then its truncate the table 
    • Since we are using flat table still use geometry remover to remove additional geometry 
    • Flat table has valid primary key 

Any help/inputs/suggestions would be great !!!
thanks in advance !!

Can you update/add rows to that table via ArcGIS?

If its just a flat table and doesn’t have versioning or archiving on it, it will be much faster to write directly to SQL rather than via SDE
