I'm doing the following:
- Create a polygon shapefile
- Calculate area for each feature
- Make Feature Layer to select only features that are below a given size (this I found I have to do, since there is no tool for Select by Attribute)
- Run Eliminate
Each time, the model stops when trying to start Eliminate, saying:
Failed to execute. Parameters are not valid. ERROR 000156: Input must be a feature class
The tool needs a feature class with a selection, so I think I'm missing something when trying to select the features.
I use an iterator to run this without letting the intermediate products load into ArcGIS.
Is it possible that this causes the problem, since ArcGIS is not aware of the layer?
