Automating symbology update for feature class layer

Discussion created by oheneyd on Jun 27, 2013
Hi Everyone,

I have a line feature class layer that is to be regularly edited/updated.  It is essentially keeping track of the year that the object was last serviced, and then is has according symbology.  I have been trying to find a way to automate the symbology updating process, as I am only an intern here, and the regular employees who will be using this are more likely to mess something up if I try to teach them how to do it manually.  I was wondering if there was a way to create a new tool that would do this?

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance!
