I'm trying to make map book with data driven pages. Never a problem when it just a grid specified for the complete extent. But now i am using a grid that covers more than the area i want to print. i was wondering if it is possible to specify wich pages to print, or to use in the layout.

  • Couldn't you just create a new .shp or feature class, from a selection of the complete grid, of the pages you want to print and use that as your DDP index layer? It seems like a simple fix, but maybe I'm misunderstanding the question. – cl3 Jun 30 '16 at 14:06
  • Have you tried selecting the grid features you want exported/printed, and then running your export or print using DDP? In the dialog box there is an option to only use the selected index features. Alternately you could create a selection layer in your TOC from your grid, and then use that as your index layer. – johns Jun 30 '16 at 16:46
  • The way to do this is to put a definition query on the DDP layer to only show the pages you want. Then, refresh your DDP and run again. – Fezter Jun 30 '16 at 22:07

Create a definition query on your DDP layer to only show the pages you want.

Run your DDP again. This will only print the pages that you specify.
