Stopping an edit session

This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.

The edit session can be stopped using the Stop Editing tool. This prevents any changes to the data from being written to the geodatabase.

  1. On the main menu, click Customize > Toolbars > Production Editing.
  2. Click the Stop Editing button Stop Editing on the Production Editing toolbar.

    The geodatabase becomes uneditable. If you have made edits, you will be prompted to save the changes if you want.
