In ModelBuilder, have an input point feature class with a varying number of points (rows) that require a closest distance value to 9 polygon feature classes.
In ArcMap 10.0, I can set parameters in the Generate Near Table tool to output a table with a row for each point of the input feature class (IN_FID) and the nearest distance to each of the Near features. For instance, if I have 2 points in the input feature class and 9 polygon Near feature classes that I wish to obtain the nearest distance to, the resultant table contains 18 rows, one for each of the IN_FIDs and its distance to each of the NEAR_FIDs.
In ArcMap 10.2.1, the same parameter settings result in a table with only 2 rows, one for each IN_FID and only the closest point of the closest Near feature. With this result, I will have to run the tool 9 times and then merge the tables to get one table with each distance.
I would like to use the additional Method parameter to acquire these near distance geodesically for better accuracy but am disappointed in having to run the tool this often.
Am I missing some setting here? Or, is there another tool I can use to obtain these same results?
I have attached screenshots of the v10.0 and v10.2.1 model, settings and resultant tables.
