comment How to truncate field names to 10 characters in model builder
Hey, I was trying to edit the name (column headers). The answer by blah238 sorted it out. Thanks for taking a look at it though.

Ah perfect! That did it, thanks so much for this. I really need to learn Python better, I tried Calculate Value for a while but just couldn't figure out the code to do this. Thanks again!

Oh, and I'm running ArcGIS for Desktop 10.0

That makes sense @PolyGeo I've edited the question to include examples of the titles and a bit more description plus a screenshot of my tool. Thanks for the help.

comment Running a new iteration for each column of a dataset in ArcGIS
Oh right, hah, makes more sense. The output would essentially be the exact same as the input but with just a single field (year) and only a single class in each. Its so that I can run the Euclidean distance raster creation tool on the resultant class and year specific shapefiles. Trying to determine animal location distances from each habitat type in over a span of about 15 years. The shapefiles are just a middle step that I don't know how to avoid/want to keep them in case I have to go back for something...

comment Running a new iteration for each column of a dataset in ArcGIS
I may have sorted it out on my own, although its not very elegant. But its essentially the same model as I posted above, but copying the "feature class to feature class" tool and in the equation bar saying "Year"=%Value% and changing "Year" to equal the Field that I want a new shapefile for. Its running through now, but is taking a while as the dataset is huge. If anyone know a better way to do this, please let me know. And if not, I'll check in the morning to see if it worked and if so I'll answer my own question. Thanks

comment Running a new iteration for each column of a dataset in ArcGIS
The desired output from the model I gave would be a shapefile for each unique habitat classification (one for Deciduous, one for Disturbance, one for Lowland Conifer, etc) for the year 2008. It would go down the entire row, subset each polygon that is associated with that classification, and create a new shapefile with all of the occurrences of that classification. So what I hope to do is make it so that the model would run through the field "2008", but would then run through the field "2009","2010",etc. Repeating for each year that I have. A new shapefile for each habitat class for each year

Hah, alright, thanks for the motivation. I'll have to spend a little time working around with it.

It looks like its asking the same thing yeah. Not sure if I saw it or not, may have not scrolled down far enough past the Python script (which terrifies me, pretty new to all this) and missed the answers that I could have understood. Thanks for the link though.
