I have created a model that selects attributes from an SDE layer and exports the selection to a .shp file. I have set it to import the symbology from an existing .lyr file but it does not work. When I go into the model to check the symbology import settings, its gone. In fact, if I change this to the path of my .lyr file, save, close and then reopen, the settings are dropped. The .shp file does get created, but not with the symbology from the .lyr file. This seems like a fairly simple task, but I can't seem to get it working.
Any help would be appreciated.
