Unable to set zone back to None "<None>" using ModelBuilder.

When updating a model's zone attribute using ModelBuilder, why do I get the following message?

"Warning: Unable to assign attribute "Zone" for element "P-1" because referenced element "<None>" does not exist."

[Problem #: 41084]


This is because the program is expecting a zone called "<None>" to exist in the zone manager and will not know that you meant to set it back to None.

Option 1: To set a zone back to <None>, leave that field/cell blank in your source data file.

Option 2: Create a zone in the zone manager called "<None>".
