I have built a model that goes through a folder of raster files (TIFF), calling each time one file and running a routine.

The problem I am facing is that imported raster files do not have an attribute table. I know how to create it manually for each one, but I would like to incorporate it to ModelBuilder.

When I create manually the attribute table, ArcGIS creates some auxiliary files (XML, OVR and DBF).

Does anyone know if this can be automatized in ModelBuilder? and how?

there is a tool for this : build raster attribute table (management > raster properties). Note that you can right click on it to launch it in batch, without the need of Model builder
