While I was doing an exercise for one of my subjects, it was asked to use the "split by attribute" feature on the ModelBuilder in order to get separate shapefiles. The issue is that as soon as I open the tool, wether its inside or outside the ModelBuilder, new or existing project, it shows up an error in the "Input table" section. If I hover my mouse on the error, it wont show any message

enter image description here

If I try to run it, it won't output me anything

  • you may need to be working in a gdb... see gis.stackexchange.com/questions/279596/… (not the same question, but their issue may inform yours) – AlexS1 Oct 11 at 15:53
  • Have you tried adding your input table to the parameter? It will probably make the red X go away. – Emil Brundage Oct 11 at 16:16
