Then select a row. When you get an error message that tells you what is required, don't argue with it, fix the problem that it tells you. If arcpy requires you to select a row to work with, then you have to select a row to work with. > import arcpy > mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument('CURRENT') > df = arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(mxd, "Layers") [0] > df.zoomToSelectedFeatures() How do you expect to zoom to selected features if you have no selected features?

what I am thinking is that I can specify the first layer(mapindex shapefile) in the table of contents (using ArcGIS 10) and then specify the row of that attribute table(mapindex's). Create loop to go through the attribute table's record until the end of it.

Thanks again,
