I have a model using ModelBuilder that extracts data from an SDE database into a new personal geodatabase that the user creates. I don't want to include any feature classes that have no geometry. Is there a way to check all feature classes for geometry and delete the ones without using ModelBuilder? The tool also extracts tables from spatial features from the SDE, is there a way to check if data exists in these tables and if not then delete them? I am using ArcGIS 9.3.1. Thank you.
I am using "feature class to feature class" tool to export the layers from SDE to the geodatabase. Do I need to add something (null) to the 'expression' box inside the "feature class to feature class" tool to omit the layer if it has no geometry? Thanks for your help.
