I have contour data of 1 foot contours. How do I write a select by attribute query to only select 10 foot intervals. ie: 750, 760, 770, 780......

Than data range is between 10ft and 900ft, est. So I can't do and "equal to" expression in ArcGIS Pro.

I tried the expression MOD([ELEV], 10) = 0, but it failed.

This data covers Eagle Pass, TX.

Try to enclose the field name with double quotes "" because enclosing of the field name depends on the file type. You can refer to SQL reference for query expressions used in ArcGIS If you are using File Geodatabase or shapefile, you need to use double quotes.

MOD("ELEV", 10) = 0

In the following shapefile example, double quotes is used and the expression works without a problem:
