Index Grid that changes with page change
I am creating a small street atlas, and I would like to create a grid as I can do using Data Frame Properties - Grids - in the Reference Grid Style. What I am trying to figure out is how to make a grid that will work with my Data Driven Pages, where the grid appears on each page, but will cover the extent of the entire county. I hope I am making sense here. So if I have a grid A-F and 1-5, page 1 may only show A-B and 1-2, the next page C-D and 3-4. I know I can make a static grid but when I make my street index for lookup the index numbers would have duplicates. Any ideas?
Mapping Center Answer:
Try creating a grid index feature exactly four times the size of your other grid. This way you will be able to show four sections of your other grid on each data driven page. This entry in the help will give you a better description on the grid index feature: Creating grid index features.
