I am trying to populate a field with text using the field calculator. However, it will not populate the field with the string of text I enter. The process I used was this: I open the attribute table to the feature dataset and add a field. Next I run a field calculation of the new field and the equation used is CountyAbv="GE". After running the calculator the "Null" values in the new field remain.
Note: I have tried to run the calculator both in and out of an edit session and I have installed the latest patches for ArcGIS 10 Also, I have tried using the equation CountyAbv=String("GE") with the same result.
Thank you for checking into this. I hope we can resolve this issue.
