Does anyone know how/if you can use in-line variable substitution for an input path name in ModelBuilder for ArcGIS 10?

I used "get field value" to retrieve a code from one feature class, and I want to substitute that text string in two places in another input variable pathname.

For instance, if I used "get field value" to retrieve the code "ABC123", I would use that to call up a raster (make raster layer) with this path name: "D:\Data\Rasters\%ABC123%\el_%ABC123%

Does anyone know if this will work?

ModelBuilder won't recognize this as a valid path name right now.

  • As far as I know, you can't do this in Model builder, though it sure would be useful. See gis.stackexchange.com/questions/480/…. It was written when I was using arcgis 9.3, maybe v10 is different. You can do this in python though. Aug 30, 2011 at 17:25

It is possible to do this using the Calculate Value tool, see Adding arbitrary code to ArcGIS ModelBuilder?

You need quotes.

D:\Data\Rasters\%ABC123%\el_%ABC123%

should be

D:\Data\Rasters\'%ABC123%'\el_'%ABC123%'
