I am using the cartography grid index features tool for ArcGIS 10.3.1.my grid index feature tool

 

It does not appear to have all of the options and boxes that i see in the tutorials and instructions online

online grid index features tool

Here is the map i am hoping to make into data driven pages with a grid of square polygons

my map

 

I have tried all sorts of different combinations in the boxes. I either get one big square polygon over my map, or i get a giant grid of square polygons above my map (my map is the small blob in the lower left of the photo below).my grid

 

Any advice on what i am doing wrong?
