00007: Layer's definition query is invalid

Your ArcMap document contains a map layer with an invalid definition query. The query may be invalid due to the schema of the data source changing or it may be using incorrect syntax.


More information

If you only want to display features with certain attributes in a feature layer, you can apply a definition query to the layer. For example, you may want to display only cities with a population above a certain value. You enter a query expression to define your definition query.
