I would like to create a square buffer from a point feature. I do not understand the code that gos into it. This similar questions as asked on the forums.esri website but that was over 10 years ago. It did not work when I tried the code. If someone could help I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Buffer the points with a buffer distance of half of the side of the square. Say, your output is Points_buff.

Now, run Feature Envelope to Polygon with Points_buff as input - you'll get the squared buffers.
