Collect Events in Model Builder 9.3

Discussion created by DanEvans83 on May 26, 2011

It seems that if I use Collect Events in Model Builder and try to pass the output into a spatial join as the target features, the field map doesn't include any of the fields from my collected events. It makes no difference if I set the collected events as a precondition to the spatial join or not.

Is it because Collect Events is a script? Or maybe because it takes Feature Classes rather than Feature Layers as parameters? Is there any way around this?

I am really trying to get to grips with Model Builder but it seems like whatever I try to do with it I keep running into limitations, especially with field maps. I started a thread previously about field maps and spatial joins in Model Builder but got no response :(

Can anyone help?
