Hello All,

I am trying to figure out a way to select records from a shapefile (a specific date in (m)m/(d)d/yyyy format, (m) and (d) only for double digits) and export the selection to create a new shapefile.  The issue is I have over 400 of these dates, and rather than selecting each one individually, right clicking the layer, exporting the data, wash, rinse repeat, I'd like to figure out a way to do this like an iteration in modelbuilder.

I read over this post:

It sounds similar to what I am doing except I only have one field for a date, and I just need to select and extract features with similar dates.  Also, I am a newbie with modelbuilder and I don't really mess with python, so the script in the forum above is like reading a different language.

Any help is appreciated and thank you in advance!
