Magnetic Declination

If I can refer you to:
There is a magnetic declination drawn on the index to adjoining maps at the bottom left of this map. I have never created such and was wondering if someone could help me create the lines for the declination my index to adjoining maps. I would be grateful for suggestions on how to go about this. Thanks

Mapping Center Answer:

There are two ways you can do this:

1. This functionality is available in the Production Mapping Extension (formerly called PLTS). Here is the help topic on the subject, titled Inserting the Topo North Arrow element.

2. You can also create this in ArcMap as a graphic element -- here is a blog entry we wrote on how to do this.
