Validate an ArcGIS Workspace

When you have developed or imported an ArcGIS model, you can validate it against a set of rules in a system-provided ArcGIS validation table.

Access     Project Browser | Right-click «ArcGIS» Workspace Package | Extensions | ArcGIS | Validate ArcGIS Model

The menu option launches a validation script on the workspace. While running, the script logs information to the ArcGIS Model Validation tab of the System Output window. Check the script output for errors and warnings.

There are two ways to investigate the errors reported by the model validation script:

Expand the System Output window and review the errors and warnings directly; you can double-click on a warning or error line to highlight the element or attribute the message relates to, in the Project Browser
 
or
Copy all of the output to a text file and open the file using your preferred text editor; this is likely to provide cleaner formatting of the script's output
