Hi,

I'm trying to access files in a geodatabase in python, but python returns the error that the file doesn't exist.  In a way, this makes sense since when I look at the folder in my finder window, I can't actually access the files. Is there a way to access these files in python? I've attached some screen shots to make the problem clearer.

Thanks,
Julian

You must access geographic layers in mdb using ESRI ArcPy and not general python IO commands.
You can open a cursor to get information from this layer.
Check this: http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/018w/018w00000011000000.htm
Just replace the "gdb" with "mdb"

Have Fun
