Send spatial object to batch macro through Control Parameter?

I have a series of polygons, and I want to do an analysis on each one. I want to pass each polygon to a batch macro to complete the analysis, but I can't figure out how to actually pass a spatial object to a control parameter.

 

If I pass it into a text tool then the downstream spatial tools don't see a spatial datatype and I can't configure them.

 

I'm probably missing something basic and obvious, but what should I connect the control parameter to to make sure I can still get a spatial data type?

 

Thank you!

Can you assign each polygon a unique # and pass that # as the parameter?  You can join the incoming data to find the right polygon within the macro after that.

 

Cheers,

That's a pretty clever way of doing it, thank you!
