Work Offline from an Enterprise Database

To disconnect from the data sources in your map (for example, to work off-site), set up your map for offline editing.

Open the map file to edit offline

Connect to geospatial data stored in an FDO feature source

Export layers with joined data to SDF and connect to that SDF file to create a copy of your data

Check out features to edit, so they are locked and no one else can change them

AutoCAD Map 3D caches all your feature data connections

When you are back online, save your changes to the feature source and release any locks
