    (ArcMap Drawing Errors
    One or more layers failed to draw:
    The operation is not supported within an edit session.
    No current record.)

     

    Cause

     

    This issue may be related to the following Esri bug resolved in ArcGIS 10.2.
    NIM087222: Geometric Network traces fail to draw the results when working in an edit session on data that is in a personal geodatabase

    The problem is specific to personal (MDB) databases.
    The problem only occurs when the trace is run within an editing session.

    Workaround

     

    There are two workarounds for this issue.

    • Execute the trace outside of an editing session.
    • Modify the Electric Trace Options and have results returned as a selection instead of as drawings.
