Automate File Selection from SDE Database

Discussion created by jcusick13 on Jun 24, 2013
Hey All,

I have an SDE database which I would like to select multiple feature classes from and then pass that selection through a model I created. So far the best I've found is the wildcard field in the iterate feature classes dialog box in my model, which does not allow me to be as specific as I'd like to be with my query.

Is there a tool or script I can run that will allow me to select (or exclude) multiple feature classes from my database? I was thinking of something along the lines of how Definition Query works for attributes of a feature class?

Any input would be appreciated, thanks!
