Hello, I'm currently creating a model to run a large amount of processes and batch processes to reduce the amount of time it takes to create a constraints layer. However, I am facing an issue when I try and merge all the data together, since the majority is executed in a batch process, since many of the buffer distances for a lot of the data is the same, therefore, there is no need to have a myriad of buffer processes. When I try and merge them together, the process fails with the error "000229". I have had a look for a solution, and I know the problem is that the merge tool is trying to execute a process on a geodatabase, rather than an output layer. Is there any way to merge the batch buffered layers together? All the output from the batch buffer processes go into the same folder.

Hello all, I'm fairly new to the Arc model builder. I'm currently creating a model to create a constraints layer for solar PV, which means combining lots of different layers together. For hard constraints, such as buildings and AONB, this is easily done (see attached). However, for layers where some of the attributes are hard constraints (e.g. agricultural land classifications (ALC)), the layer needs to be split by attributes, since I only want to use specific ALC values (urban, exclusion, , zone 1, and non-agricultural - the other values go into a separate suitability model. My issue is how to use the split by attributes tool in model builder, and then use the output of that process in the clipping process. I have read about the precondition setting, but can't seem to set them. If anyone has any suggestions, that would be fab. Cheers, Pete
