    Grid Index Features - Grid not size of layout (ArcGIS 10)

    shor3847
      Hi,
      I am trying to create a grid that can be used as part of the data driven pages. I am using the "Grid Index Features (Cartogaphy)" tool. What I would like is a Grid that corresponds to 1:10,000 scale when used in the data driven pages tool. At the moment I am getting a grid which is tiny and does correspond with my selected scale.
      I have detailed the process below:
      Output Features Class : This is just called "GRID"
      Input Features: This is a polyline one feature line.
      Generate Polygon Grid....is ticked
      Use Page Unit and Scale.....is ticked and this then self generates that following attributes
      Map Scale  = 10000
      Polygon Width = 1cm
      Polygon Height = 1cm
      x coordinate = 452656.225852325
      y coordinate = 518194.9136161832
      Number of Rows = 40
      Number of Columns = 45
      Starting Page Number = 1

      I have attached a screenshot of the result that I get. If anyone can help that would be great.
      Thanks,
      Rich
