    Invalid Topology [Undetected intersection.]

    mara45
      Hi,

      I am trying to use the clip tool to cut thematic polygons with each polygon feature class, defining district boundaries. For some district polygons, I'm getting the following error message:

      ERROR 999999: Error executing function.
      Invalid Topology [Undetected intersection.]
      Failed to execute (Clip).

      I don't understand this message because the two layers are well overlapped. Any ideas on how I can solve this problem ?

      Thanks in advance.

          Sorry I am not offering a solution!

          I am getting the same error trying to clip simple rectanlges with a buffer i generated.  it worked just fine yesterday doing the same exact process with just a different Input Feature.

          I've checked geometry, they are both feature classes from the same database.

          I'm running ESRi 10.0 Build 4400 service pack 5
          ArcInfo License
          on Windows 7

          ESRI please respond!!!

          Update:

          I exported all the files from feature classes to shape-files and saved it a folder outside of the databse. This worked just fine.

          So Corrupted database?
