Running a model inside a map template
How can you insert an option, like a button or a keystroke, to run a small model in a map template? I need to create a soils map and label only the soils inside a property boundary and list the soil names in the legend.

I am not quite sure what you are asking but I will try to answer. Let me know if I am off base.
You cannot use a model to create a map and label the features and add a legend. You can create a model to select the soils that meet a certain criteria, however (e.g., they are within a particular property boundary). This would be a model that you would add to ArcToolbox, so essentially it IS in your user interface. However, as stated above, you cannot create a model to add a legend to a map document using Model Builder. You could possibly do this with ArcObjects bout it seem to me to be overkill for what you are trying to do.
