comment Calculating max and average distance from point to points in ModelBuilder?
Thanks for that great suggestion. I've implemented it and yes it works just fine although I haven't found a tool that will automatically generate a table of the statistics for each nest id yet. I an do that in Excel though. However I'm still interested in the original answer because while this 2nd suggestion gets the job done, it has to be done manually. Ideally I could use the first answer to create a tool that just took some inputs and automatically generated the results table. I may need to rerun this many many times so having it all automated would be a huge plus.

Thank you. I understand your suggestion now and have implemented it. However it is not working as I expected due to the Value of the iterator always starting with '1' even though that is not a id for any of the nests. I have no idea where that '1' is coming from. See my updates.

comment Calculating max and average distance from point to points in ModelBuilder?
Ok adding a Iterate Feature Selection and using the %value% on the Point Distance output I'm getting an output table for each nest which is good progress. However, each table is still showing the distance from each nest to ALL points. I need it to show only the distance to the points that have the same nestID as the nest.

I'm not 100% clear on your suggestion. I see how the iterate Feature Selection will iterate through the nestIDs in the Nests feature. However I need the Point Distance tool to only calculate distances in the SurveyPoints feature whose id matches the nestID. How does the SurveyPoints get filtered? Can the ID from the Nests feature be passed to a filter for SurveyPoint during each iteration?

Nevermind. I quickly found a python script to add the filename to the features which I can run before doing the Append. For reference it is here: link

comment Outputing shape_Area value from polygon feature to output table in ModelBuilder?
That is almost perfect PolyGeo -thanks. It works but the only problem is that the result doesn't have any identifier in the attribute table to identify what row was from what input class. Ideally I'd like to grab the name of the feature class and append it along with the data to the attribute table. Maybe that is a different question though and should be done at an earlier step.

Ok. I'm starting to follow now and have it generating output. The problem now is that it is generating the PointDistance from each Nest to all MovementPoints. I want it to only use the MovementPoints whose ID match the Nest. In the example image, it is currently calculating the distance from Nest a1 to all movement points (a1, a2, and a3). I want only the distance from nest a1 to movement point a1, and then a2 to a2, etc. Maybe I need to iterate through a query for each NestID? But then I'd get a bunch of output tables when I just want one.

I uploaded the model but, like I said, I'm at the very start so there isn't really much there to look at.
