Using a ToolBox Model to create a customised ArcPad Check Out (PART 2) continued...

Some of you may have noticed a flaw in the model that I showed for creating an automated check out in my post

It would probably be smarter if you copy the newly created data to your device, rather than the template ;)

Now, somebody did ask on that posting, for more info on the Destination string for this model. The destination string needs to be of the form "dev:\foldername". So, if I was to double click on CECopy in my model, I would see the following dialog box. the Source_FileSpec field is automatically populated with Target AXF (that comes from the model) and I simply added dev:\ to the Destination field to copy the file to the root directory on my mobile device.
