Hello
System Vista, ArcGIS 9.3

I want to make the name of the output shape file (out_name) the same as the working folder (Zoon).
Therefore, the output shape files will not have the same name even if they are generated by shape files in different folders.

Please kindly advise if this is possible.
If so, please kindly instruct how to modify the code below and thank you.
Thank you

Elaine
