I'm terrebly sorry for stupid questions but I'm lost. I can't find a tool to save my shape file as mxd under ModelBuilder. Is it possible to do this?
An MXD is a configuration file for ArcMap. A shapefile is a legacy data structure from the mid-1990s which can be added to an ArcMap session and used as one of many data sources. If you then save the ArcMap session to an MXD, then the next time you open the MXD with ArcMap the shapefile will be available as a layer in the ArcMap session. I hope that helps explain the relationship between MXDs and shapefiles.
I find the Esri free online training to be an excellent way to find my way:
