Batch IDW from shapefile

I have a point shapefile with 365 (daily for 1 year) data columns.  I need to run an IDW for each column, 365 in total.  I have done this as a batch process in the past.  Is there any way to get the Z-value field and Output raster entries in the batch to fill sequentially?  Or any other way to do this?  I played with Model Builder a bit, but couldn't find an option there either. 

It gets old selecting D1 (for day 1), D2, D3, D4....D365 for the Z-value and then naming the output rasters accordingly.  My limited programming experience tells me there has to be a smarter and faster way to do this.
