I am trying to create data driven pages grid for a utility map. I want to set it up where each cell in the grid corresponds to one 11x17"  page when it is printed out. Is there a specific row width and row height to specify in grid index features to do this or is it just trial and error?

Right now I can make a grid but the cells in the grid are in the shape of a square, I want them to be landscape so to fit on an 11x17 sheet of paper. So as 1 cell in the grid can eqaul one page in the mapbook.

For polygon Width and Height, use a ratio of 17 to 11 and it should work out.

Think I figured it out! Thks!

I am trying to write the code block in the field calculator to calculate a column of ordered numbers (ie. 1,2,3,4,etc). Can anyone help me with this? I used to know it but when the changed to python, my little code block won't work anymore.
