I have created a model that does numerous processes some of which are it creates a shapefile, adds it to the TOC, and symbolizes it. But I can not figure out how to zoom to the extent of the shapefile. So as a result I am still required to open the map and zoom to the shapefile to finish the map layout.  If I could do this then the entire process could be automated which is the desired result. Does anyone have any suggestions.  Currently we are using 9.3.1 because of a 3rd party vendor however at the end of this year we will make the transition to 10.1.
