Is there a simple way of making ArcGIS stop if the following message comes up after "copy rows" have finished (see picture); enter image description here

Executing (Copy Rows (4)): CopyRows QueryTableB_cx C:\Users\fmromss\Documents\ArcGIS\Default.gdb\QueryTable_CopyRows2_cx Start Time: Mon Apr 25 12:40:25 2016 WARNING 000117: Warning empty output generated. Succeeded at Mon Apr 25 12:40:25 2016 (Elapsed Time: 0,38 seconds)

It would be quite neat if It did not export it to excel if theres not any actual data.

Bear in mind this is just a small part of the model hence I dont want the entire model to stop, just this process.

One option would be:

  • Use Get Count tool on query result table and assign result of tool to a variable
  • Then, use if-then-else Branching logic to check if variable is greater than 1 or not
  • The "get count" tool seems to do the trick by itself! Thanks man
