Very new to ModelBuilder - I am trying to use ModelBuilder to add a field called “Survey_ID” then populate that field using Calculate Field to use the last 6 characters of the filename for a group of feature classes. The Iterate Feature Classes and Add Field options seem to be working, but my Calculate Field expression seems to be incorrect. Here is the error I get when I run the model:
Executing (Calculate Field): CalculateField "O:\DCF\Test HerringAS Geodatabase.gdb\HAS_Photo_0325_201702" Survey_ID Right('HAS_Photo_0325_201702', 6) VB #
Start Time: Thu Apr 13 09:16:24 2017
General error executing calculator.
ERROR 999999: Error executing function.
Failed to execute (Calculate Field).
For the Calculate Field I hit the Calculator icon, and in the box for Survey_ID = I use this expression: Right('%Name%', 6)
Any idea what I’m doing wrong here?
Thanks so much for any assistance!
