Importing a geodatabase schema from an XML workspace document
After a geodatabase schema has been exported to an XML workspace document, it can be shared with other ArcGIS users who can import it into their own geodatabases using ArcCatalog as follows:
- If one does not already exist, create a new geodatabase into which you will import the schema.
- Right-click the geodatabase, point to Import, then click XML Workspace Document.
- Use the browser to locate the XML workspace document to import. If you are sure it is schema only, you can check Schema Only before executing the import operation.
