ArcScripts is intended for the free exchange of scripts and tools related to ESRI software products. Please alert the moderator if this script is a demo, trial-version, or an advertisement for a retail product.
This script is designed to make it easier to copy an MXD, SXD or 3DD document onto a CD or DVD, by automatically copying all the required datasets into a single location, and changing the layers in the project to point to the new location.
Feature layers and tables will be copied to a new file geodatabase, while raster layers will be copied to the same directory. The Map, Globe or Scene document and datasets can then be burnt to DVD.
This is similar to the Package Data functionality provided by ArcGIS Publisher but does not require a special license file. It is also similar to the Disconnected Editing functionality but is simpler (eg there is no option to specify an Extent) and it works on multiple workspaces concurrently. This code works in ArcGlobe and ArcScene, unlike the core ESRI options.
