If Field Value Is

Summary

Evaluates if the values in an attribute field match a specified value, expression, or second field.

Learn how If Field Value Is works in ModelBuilder

Usage

  • This tool is intended for use in ModelBuilder and not in Python scripting.

  • The tool has two Boolean outputs, True and False. Based on the condition being evaluated one of the two boolean outputs is true and the other false after the tool runs. These boolean outputs have to be set as a precondition to the downstream tools for those to execute if either of the preconditions is true.

Syntax

FieldValueIsIfThenElse_mb (in_data, where_clause, {invert_where_clause}, selection_condition, {count}, {count_min}, {count_max})
ParameterExplanationData Type
in_data

Input element to be evaluated.

Data Element, Layer, Table View, Graph, Utility Network
where_clause

An SQL expression used to select a subset of records. For more information on SQL syntax see SQL reference for query expressions used in ArcGIS.

SQL Expression
invert_where_clause
(Optional)

Specifies whether the result of the expression should be inverted.

  • NON_INVERTThe result of the query will be used as is. This is the default.
  • INVERTThe result of the query will be inverted. If a selection_type option is used, the inversion occurs before the selection is combined with existing selections.
Boolean
selection_condition

The selection condition to use for the field values of the records matching the SQL expression.

  • EXISTSChecks if any records match the SQL expression. This is the default.
  • NO_SELECTIONChecks if none of the records match the SQL expression.
  • ALL_SELECTEDChecks if all of the records match the SQL expression.
  • IS_EQUAL_TOChecks if the number of records that match the SQL expression is equal to the Count value.
  • IS_BETWEENChecks if the number of records that match the SQL expression is between the Minimum Count value and Maximum Count value.
  • IS_LESS_THANChecks if the number of records that match the SQL expression is less than the Count value.
  • IS_GREATER_THANChecks if the number of records that match the SQL expression is greater than the Count value.
  • IS_NOT_EQUAL_TOChecks if the number of records that match the SQL expression is not equal to the Count value.
