I've got a model that has several string input variables that I'd like to use as initial model dialogue text inputs but I can't seem to get it to work. If I "edit" the model and supply the variable values for each of the blue variable bubbles and then run the model from within an edit session, it works fine. When I close out the edit session and try to open/run the model by first filling in the dialogue for the two variables I get the following error: "ERROR 000110: GIS.%variable1%%variable2% does not exist."
String Variable 1 (incident name) and string variable 2 (incident date) are used for the output name of the output feature class that I want to create using a merge tool. So the output feature class name would be "gis.incidentblabla7_14_16".
What's the trick to getting modelbuilder to play nice with that open dialogue and model variables?
I have modeled the three variables as parameters. When I open the model, the input dialogue comes up and I'm able to enter the parameters values, but when I execute the model I get the above error.
Trying to figure out how to attach the toolbox.
