I have a process with an address list as an input table. The row iterator should iterate through entries of the address name column and then I use the output values for some other stuff.

It works for unique values (addresses). But when there are some doubled values in my input list, it just ignores those rows. I also need those similar addresses in my output.

    What do you mean by double values? A picture and sample data would help people understand what you are asking.

  • Thanks for your answer. Basically the story around would distract from the problem since it is a question concerning a single function in ArcGIS (row iterator). Why he cannot deal with non unique input values.

It sounds like you do not have uniquely identified records, i.e., there are some near or true duplicates.

According to the ArcGIS 10.4 Interate Row Selection documentation, if you set group by fields and those group by fields are the same for two records, Iterate Row Selections should skip the second record. If you do not set a group by field, the tool should just use the ObjectID to identify records in the output, and it should not skip records. Or, if you have a primary key other than ObjectID, that could work as a group by field. The documentation is a little clearer in the built-in help than the Online version I linked to.

I personally have not tried this tool using no group by fields.

  • Thanks for your answer. I already tried that last time and it didnt work. I will give it another try the upcoming days.
