I am creating a series of maps and I want each map to include the feature of focus. I want to do this by selecting each one. I also want to include a reference in the legend. How would I automate this process?
Have you looked into Using Page Definition Queries—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop
This may help do what you need.
Thanks, that was helpful. I have done that but now some elements that have the same attribute data are both being selected. I've tried using the OBJECTID field but nothing showed up. I've tried other unique fields as well but nothing else will work...
Can you post a screen shot of what you're seeing and show how it is not working? Could it be an issue with how the query is set up?
I actually figured it out! I had to create a unique text field in both the index and the layer of focus to connect them. Then I just had to change the name field in the data driven pages properties to the field of choice. I then changed the page name field in the page definition query to the desired field.
