Raster cost-distance, selecting a destination

Discussion created by kitty1000 on May 12, 2010

I'm working on a project and using ArcGis for pretty much the second time ever (and the first time was pretty basic), so I'm completely lost....
I want to start with a raster of 'potential destinations' (the values of the cells correspond to the 'attractiveness' of that destination, which I have), I then want to be able to select cells to be 'the' destination based on going to the highest value cell first, then the next highest etc. until the lowest value cell is reached.

BUT I can't work out how to select individual cells and make them a destination in the cost-distance tool; How do I select individual cells?
Also, is there a way to automate the process of selecting destinations?

Any and all help is welcome....
Thank you,
