Hey Everyone,

So, here we go.  New ArcGIS version, new map book utility, new questions.

Right, I need to generate a map book for around 550 properties all over Australia.  The properties vary in size and I'd like to create the grid so the cells are different sizes, based on the size of the property.  This is probably one approach, but I can also create a cell for each property all at the same size, but with an attribute that specifies a scale suitable to display the whole property.

So in the first choice I'd have different cell sizes and the second I'd have the same cell size, but different scale values.

Either way, how would I go about doing this and are these functions built into the existing tools already and I just missed it?
