Hi,

I have a custom model which uses three tools and data from a variety of different geodatabases, however all the input data is from the same Feature Dataset.

Is there a way to set - without creating a variable - the current workspace as the same location as the input data?

Thanks,
DK

Hi,

I found what I was looking for. in ModelBuilder, Insert > Create Variable... > Workspace, set it as a Model Parameter so now I can specify my workspace when adding inputs etc.

Thanks for your help.

You can set current and scratch workspaces for individual models if you go to Model > Model Properties > Environments, check Workspace and then click Values.  Is that what you're looking for?  If not, I think you'll have to use a variable and inline substitution, as you'll need the workspace to be dynamic, based on where the inputs are coming from.
