I am using Make Feature Layer as a tool in a model. You can see I have two instances of the tool. I'm having issues with the top one, Make Feature Layer (2).
I am using the tool's field renaming feature in order to avoid the complicated Add Field, Calculate Field, Delete Field process that is the other option for renaming. However, the tool is not seeing the correct field map from the input layer. It is unaware of the two required fields Shape_Length and Shape_Area. Therefore, when these two fields unexpectedly show up, the renaming is all offset by two fields. For instance, here is a table showing an example of my settings and desired result compared to my actual result.
Now to form this into some kind of question. Has anyone else experienced this? How can I get the tool to see the correct field map? Or is there another way around this?
