Batch create feature classes and populate fields

Discussion created by williew10 on Jul 22, 2011
I am trying to use modelbuilder to batch create 15 feature classes that will all be related to the same feature data set. Also, each feature class will have a different set of fields that needs to be assigned. Is there a way to do this in using modelbuilder/python? I have the list of feature classes that need to be created in a spreadsheet along with the fields that need to assigned to each.

Also, is there a way to assign default field values at the same time (data type, text size limit, etc)

ArcInfo 10, SP2
