comment Using Arcpy, how can I determine min and max elevation from a raster DEM layer within my current extent?
At the moment it sounds like the fact that you are using Data Driven Pages is an aside so I think you should edit that out of your question which is really "Determining min and max elevation from raster DEM layer within current extent?"

Would you be able to edit your question to indicate the version of ArcGIS for Desktop that you are using and what you have tried so far with respect to tryi9ng to do this with the raster calculator, please?

comment Getting started with ArcGIS
The questions you need answered to progress your ArcGIS for Desktop learnings are on-topic for this site but I recommend that you take the Tour and review What makes a good question? because our Q&A format works differently to a discussion forum. That should give you some ideas on what single question you wish to ask here first, and then to edit your question to focus on that.

comment Retrieving points that make up drive-time polygon generated by ArcGIS for Desktop in automated way?
Welcome to GIS SE! Would you be able to edit your question to include some details about your web application, please? If it is ArcGIS for Server then the ArcGIS Network Analyst for Server would be the logical first thing to look at.

comment ArcEngine 10 Polyline with arrow
Welcome to GIS SE! Something to be aware of is that your answers should directly address the question, and in this case there is a requirement for an ArcGIS Engine (ArcObjects) solution and what you have provided uses the ArcGIS Desktop GUI.

comment Writing Variables Values into Feature Class Table in ArcGIS Modelbuilder
With steps 1-3 working, I think you should edit your question to focus it only on where you are stuck i.e. step 4. You say that it takes your input watershed feature class so can you tell us more about that, and then elaborate on what you need as outputs, please?

comment Problems with the Clip and Intersect tool
Welcome to GIS SE! You say "I am having the same problem" but I am unclear as to what the original problem you are referring to is. Can you edit your question to elaborate, please?

comment Error while scripting ArcGIS in VB.NET “Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040202”
Welcome to GIS SE! For questions like this one I recommend always including an arcobjects tag to help bring it to the attention of people with those skills.

comment Duplicating polygons in Layer using ArcPy cursors?
@mahmoudhageer As indicated in this answer getValue/setValue are methods used with old style (arcpy) cursors and are not available with new style (arcpy.da). I too think you should standardize on using arcpy.da.

comment MapInfo License Server - Can It Serve Multiple Versions of MapInfo
Welcome to GIS SE! Something in you answer that I think needs clarifying is whether your question there is actually a statement and should be rearranged to remove its question mark, or is it a new question in which case it should be researched/asked separately.

comment How to convert *.shp files to *.gmt format type files?
@BradNesom I think "hydrographical network shapefile" will be a line shapefile of a hydrographic network. GMT could be en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generic_Mapping_Tools. In any event I think this question should be focussed on the conversion and the extra parts researched/asked separately.

comment Remove Duplicate items in legend
I'm not clear what you are trying to do so can you edit your question to clarify that, please? Perhaps you can include a picture of the Table of Contents and then explain step by step how you resolve one issue with it so that we can then advise on any automation options.

comment ArcObjects - Create and Draw a Transparent Polygon
Welcome to GIS SE! Even though this may answer the question, answers (and questions) here are normally a minimum length of about a paragraph. If at all possible, would you be able to edit your answer to expand upon how you think this information will assist the asker of the question.

comment How to display rental/property data from Zillow on ArcGIS Online?
Also, what type of integration are you looking for? If you can include some of your requirements, then once again I think it more likely that someone may help.

comment How to display rental/property data from Zillow on ArcGIS Online?
I think you should edit that lead into your question, along with why you think that might not be the answer to your very brief question. In general, the more prior research you can show, the more likely it is that someone will help you with an answer to your question.
