Calculating fields with model builder

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to set up a model that will allow me to "calculate" fields automatically.
I've created a model that has a vector shapefile that I am editing as the main focus of processing. I calculate some values, in this case words (i.e. "hand digitized" in the field calculator). I export the data into a new shapefile for the location and delete all of the data that I had previously entered. When I try to run the model again it says that all of the processes have already been run. I already know how to deal with this problem (validate the entire model), but I want to clean up the model a bit so that it will be able to run each time without a problem.
