Export individual index polygons with Data Driven Pages

Discussion created by JQuinn-esristaff Employee on Feb 3, 2011
I'm trying to isolate each polygon in my index layer by creating individual layers for them to perform a SelectByLocation on point data within each polygon.  Is there any way to script this?  I'm working with town polygons and Dam point data.  This will be the first step in a script that I have already written.  I know a similar process can be done with the Page Definition function, but I want to be able to have a generic script in case data in future maps don't have a common field to enable Page Definition.
