    Default Grid Index Features - Grid not size of layout (ArcGIS 10)

    Hi,
    I am trying to create a grid that can be used as part of the data driven pages. I am using the "Grid Index Features (Cartogaphy)" tool. What I would like is a Grid that corresponds to 1:10,000 scale when used in the data driven pages tool. At the moment I am getting a grid which is tiny and does correspond with my selected scale.
    I have detailed the process below:
    Output Features Class : This is just called "GRID"
    Input Features: This is a polyline one feature line.
    Generate Polygon Grid....is ticked
    Use Page Unit and Scale.....is ticked and this then self generates that following attributes
    Map Scale = 10000
    Polygon Width = 1cm
    Polygon Height = 1cm
    x coordinate = 452656.225852325
    y coordinate = 518194.9136161832
    Number of Rows = 40
    Number of Columns = 45
    Starting Page Number = 1

    I have attached a screenshot of the result that I get. If anyone can help that would be great.
    Thanks,
    Rich

    When I created my map book, I was not able to use the option "Use page unit and scale". For me, it worked when I unchecked this option, then set the width and height by coordinate system units. You might try it this if you know the real world units (not map layout units) of the desired grid cell size.

    Unhappy Re: Grid Index Features - Grid not size of layout (ArcGIS 10)

    Hi, I am having a similar problem. I am trying to create a grid with a scale of 1:800. I put in the output info, input is a city polygon, checked Generate Polygon Grid..., checked Use Page Unit and Scale, typed in 800 for Map Scale, typed in 1.25 inches and 1 inches for the Polygon Width and Height. Everything else I left to the default. The result was a grid that was 1:1340. What the heck went wrong??? How do I get a grid that is a specific scale? I need to make a unique grid for each project I work on. I want the grid to be based on the extent of the Data Frame. I need to be able to create specific scales for each grid.
