You need to separate your model into two models. As you have it now, the results table gets created with every iteration. Step 1 needs to be in separate model that calls a sub model, which performs the rest of the steps. Refer to this help file on how to set up nested models.

A check box means user interaction so you will need to look at using either a Python script tool / Python toolbox or a Python Add-in. What you are actually needing is called a value table. Have a look at this link in the help doco.

You will need to create a boolean variable and define it as a model parameter. This will add a check box option when double clicking on the model. OR Create a script tool that runs your code and has a boolean data type. Either way you will have to check the boolean value using an if statement.

in the code block you'll define a function, and then in the expression, you'll call the function with the needed field names, like so : Code block : def picture_name(current_name, map_number): return current_name[current_name.rindex("\\"):] + "|" + map_number + ".tif" Expression : picture_name(!Pictures!, !MapNumber!) I haven't test this code, ...

If Shapefile you can only delete (single delete) one feature set. Or use Iterate with Feature Datasets (Geodatabase) Delete Fields http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#//00170000004n000000

Personally I would avoid the batch tool approach. Create a sub-model and cycle through the datasets using an iterator deleting the fields as necessary.

You could use the Parse Path (ModelBuilder) tool with the input being your MXD. The resulting PATH will be your input to the Create File GDB (Data Management) tool. Below is a simple model showing this. It seems that you cannot use the output value from the Parse path tool as a direct input into the Create File GDB tool. This is probably because the File ...

This can be achieved in several steps. Run a Spatial Join for your buffer polygons and road network layers (right-click the buffer polygons layer in the TOC and choose Join and Relates > Join). You will get an output polygon feature class which contains information on how many road features were located (even partially) within the buffered polygons. ...

Take a look at this tool Feature Class To Feature Class (Conversion), the help section contains sample scripts if you want to go the arcpy path. Right clicking on the tool reveals a "batch" option, you can set the names how you want.

You could add a Boolean variable and expose it as a parameter then connect it as a precondition to the Make Feature Layer. This will allow ALL layers to be loaded if TRUE or none of them if FALSE. I don't think you can control each layer as this would require you to interact with the model on every iteration and model builder does not work that way.

If your Have field is of type date and you Needed field type is string, you can do it with the following statement in the field calculator of Arcmap: !DateFieldName!.split( )[1]

If you are running a model from within ArcMap or ArcCatalog, go to Geoprocessing>Geoprocessing Options and put a check in the box next to Overwrite the outputs of geoprocessing operations. If you are going to export your model and run it as a Python script, add this line to your script. arcpy.env.overwriteOutput = 1

Here is a bare-bones example (borrowing from both Jim and Richard's answers): import arcpy fc = r'C:\junk\FILE_GDB.gdb\Export_output_gdb' # input feature class field1, field2 = 'Distance', 'Type' # fields to sort, and group fcOut = r'in_memory\blah' # output feature class # set up counters bankcount = 0 churchcount = 0 ...

I think we can handle this using an arcpy.SearchCursor (I still use the Old School SearchCursor) and usage of the arcpy.Select_analysis() tool. The following is probably inefficient but I hope it helps. This assumes the Banks and Churches layer is held in a File Geodatbase (.gdb): import arcpy BanksAndChurches = r'Path\To\BanksAndChurches\FeatureClass' ...

Without seeing the model or the exported Python script it is hard to say this definitively but ... If you have the line below in your Python script: arcpy.env.overwriteOutput = True then it should take care of ensuring that what you try to write can be written. Alternatively, you could use two lines like the following to ensure that the outputFC does ...

This code has not been tested, but it should get you going in the right direction: import arcpy from arcpy.sa import * arcpy.env.workspace = "Path/To/Workspace.gdb" arcpy.CheckOutExtension("Spatial") #Static Variables field = "VALUE" #Build list of years rasters = arcpy.ListRasters("x_*, "ALL") #Loop through names, get year and use it to select rasters ...

I think the only way to do this currently is to instruct the user to create a point layer (with one point) which is then used as vector layer input in the Processing model. As far as I know, the Processing scripts and models currently don't provide any user interaction capabilities. If you need user interactions, you can write a plugin instead. The plugin ...

I'm not sure where %Name% is coming from, so I may not be able to answer your question entirely, but wrapping something in exclamation points is how you get a value out a field in a python code block. %Name% is a model builder variable, not a field name. So remove the the exclamation points and just use %Name%[3:] and see if that works.

With instances of ArcMap and ArcCatalog no, each one creates a temp session directory in your %TMP% folder called arc<4 hex digits> like arcA7B0 and is thus unique. For instances of python, yes, it happens frequently. Multiple running instances of python scripts started from command line will cause each other to crash randomly. This limitation does not ...

The introduction of Python toolboxes at ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop invalidates your four year old statement that all: Toolboxes, and thus their models, are binary. Standard toolboxes are binary but Python toolboxes (*.pyt) are text files. Consequently, I think Python toolboxes should be considered if version control of source code trumps the requirement ...
