ZoomToSelectedFeature Error

Good day,

I am new to python and am having the following problem. If I type the following code into the Python window in ArcMap:

import arcpy
dataframe = arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(MXD, "Layers")[0]

It works when run from the python window.

If I save it as a python script and add it to a modelbuilder model then try to run it from there it does not work.

This is the message that displays:


Executing (Zoom To Selected Feature): ZoomToSelected

Running script ZoomToSelected...

Failed script ZoomToSelected...


Traceback (most recent call last):

    MXD=arcpy.mapping.mapdocument('C:\ESRIPress\GTKModelbuilder\Maps\EX06B.mxd') #get access to the current mxd

AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'mapdocument'


Failed to execute (Zoom To Selected Feature).

What am I doing wrong with trying to get this to work from modelbuidler?
