Hi there,

I have a dataset were I need to do a selection based on a SQL query. Based on my selection I'd like to do some calculations and save my edits afterwards. It seams to be a pretty straight forward thing but I cannot get it running in the Modelbuilder.

I was playing with the Modelbuilder but any set up I tried ended up with a complete new output table. Is there maybe another tool I missed which allows me to write the results straight back into the original table?

I even tried to join the output tables with the original table and wanted to copy the results over but again it created a new feature dataset again.


Once I get that to work I'd like to do that with a whole bunch of other layers too.

Any help would be awesome.

Hi Pierre,

What kind of calculations do you need to perform on your selected data? It sounds like a model where you string together SelectLayerByAttribute followed by CalculateField. Neither of those processes creates a new output, they operate on a dataset without creating a new one.
