I have added the TAB Reader 5.2 tool to a model; TAB Reader (from DataEast) can convert multiple MapInfo tab files to ArcGIS format. However, I would like to iterate through many folders, each of which has tab files.

Is there a proper iterator type to use for this? I have tried using "feature Classes" and "Files" but am subsequently unable to link them up to the TAB Reader tool.

I'm on ArcGIS for Desktop - Advanced v10.3.1

    Can you please include a snapshot of the dialog/window of this tool? Also what happens once you right click on the tool and go to Make Variable>From Parameter option?

    Try iterating tables. You could also add a python script to capture all the file paths in a list using the os module.
