Model reports

Under the Model menu, click Report. You can either view the report on your screen or save it to a file.

The report documents everything contained in the model. The report contains three sections: Model Report, Variables, and Processes.

Model Report shows the date and time the report was generated.

Variables contains a section on each data and value variable in the model and lists the data type and value, as well as any messages about the variable.

Processes contains a section on each process (tool plus data) in the model. For each process, the name and location of the tool is listed, along with a table describing each parameter, its direction (input or output), its type (required or optional), its data type, and its value. There is also a section containing messages from the last execution of the process.

Example model report

You don't have to generate a report to view model messages. You can view messages in the message section of the Command Line window, or you can right-click a tool or variable element in the model and click View Messages.
