Using ArcGIS 10 I am able to incorporate "Select by Attributes" directly into my model. I then want to process the selected features. "Select by Location" is working successful, but connecting it to the following tools (e.g. Dissolve/Eliminate,...) always gives this error message:
"Failed to execute, parameters are not valid. Error 000840. The value is not a feature layer."
The output shapefile is somehow a so-called "Table View/Raster Layer/Mosaic Layer", although the Input Layer of "Select by Attributes" is a Feature Layer.
How to deal with this? If I put "Make Feature Layer" or "Copy Features" between "Select by Attributes" and the following tool, I get the same error message (see above).
Thank you very much for any suggestions!
