Iteration and changing processing extents in ModelBuilder

Here is what I am trying to do:

  • iterate through features in a feature class

  • for each feature create a fishnet (Create Fishnet tool)

  • implement downstream processes to work on the fishnet created for each feature

The problem i am running into is that the processing extent used by the Create Fishnet tool seems to take the full extent of the features I am trying to iterate through, and thus creates a fishnet grid for the full extent during each iteration.  How can i get model builder or the Create Fishnet tool to accept the extent of the current feature in the iteration?

Thanks in advance!

Exactly the same issue here. This was acknowledged as a bug by ESRI years ago.
