I have around 160 feature classes that I need to convert into ascii files. Spatial statistics tool ---> Utilities ---> Export feature attribute to ascii only allows converting one file at a time. Is there any way to export all my features to ascii in one go? Any script written?

Thanks

I would try using the batch grid control.

Instead of double-clicking or using right-click to Open a tool, use right-click Batch.

If your 160 feature classes are all in the same workspace you should be able to multiple-select them in the Catalog window and drag them into the first column.

I tested it below and it seemed to run OK.

Thank you so much PolyGeo, unfortunately, By default, it should take the 'output ascii name' as the 'input file name', but it doesn't. –  ToNoY Jan 11 '13 at 17:04
    
To do the Output ASCII File names I entered "C:\temp\test.asc" abd right-clicked to Fill the rest of the column with the same value. I then manually entered a number to distinguish each. The Default value is empty. –  PolyGeo Jan 11 '13 at 21:18
