Designating a name for the map sheet

The map sheet's name provides it with an identifier so it can be referenced. The map sheet name will be used for the file name when a map is saved with the Individual Map Documents storage option. The default names for the map sheets are specified from a field on the area of interest feature class. However, you can change this name to something else.
