Hello,

I am trying to calculate a number of fields including length, x start coordinates and x end coordinates within a model. I can do this easily outside a model using 'Calculate geometry'. However I was wondering what the best method to do this would be within a model? I realise there are VB and Python scripts but I am inexperienced in both. By the way I am using arc 10 if that is relevant.

Thanks for your help,

Have a look at this blog "Accessing Feature Shape in Calculate Field" -- it shows how to use the Calculate Field tool too do what you need.
