Creating relationship classes with the parcel fabric
This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.
You can store relationships in the geodatabase between external feature classes or tables and any parcel feature class or table of the parcel fabric.
In relationship classes involving the parcel fabric, the relationship type is always simple. A simple relationship is a relationship where related feature classes or tables exist independently of each other. Deleting objects in the origin table or feature class does not delete related objects in the destination table or feature class. In composite relationships, related tables and feature classes are dependent on each other, where the lifetime of objects in the destination table or feature class is controlled by the lifetime of their related objects in the origin table or feature class. Deleting objects in the origin table or feature class does not delete the related object in the destination table or feature class. Parcel fabric parcel data can only be deleted by fabric editing tools and thus can only participate in simple relationship classes.
Relationship classes can be created with the following parcel fabric tables and feature classes:
- Control points
- Line points
- Accuracy (table)
- Plans (table)
- Adjustment levels (table)
- Adjustment vectors (table)
In the New Relationship Class wizard, parcel fabric tables will appear outside the feature dataset that contains the parcel fabric. Parcel fabric feature classes will appear inside the feature dataset.
