Time to make things a little easier:

I have a repetitive monthly task of updating a handful of feature classes with updated data. Typically I delete all records and simply load in the new data. Is there a tool/function that I can drag into model builder that will delete all records without creating and empty feature and allow me to load the new data in from a shapefile.

So far I have not been able to find a tool that will allow me to delete all records and not receive and empty feature class error.

It really is that simple of a task, just time consuming, repetitive, and needs to be automated. I will keep looking, I could do this with a Python script likely, but I would like to utilize model builder a little more and I am still a rookie with python

Thanks for the input:
