Hi all,

I am hoping someone can help me out.

I have a Geometric Network of a storm water system containing two feature classes of points and lines. (All data is topologically sound with pits and pipes snapped and linework captured in direction of flow.)

The point feature class contains an attribute "ASSET TYPE", the line feature class has two attribute fields which hold this value as well (ASSET_US and ASSET_DS) referring to the attached asset of the upstream and downstream pits.

My question is, could anyone suggest a way to automate updates (through ModelBuilder or Python) to the ASSET_US and ASSET_DS fields in the pipe layer when the ASSET TYPE field has been changed in the pit layer?

thanks!

Not a GP or Python tool, but the attribute assistant can be run in batch mode and has the functions you are looking for.

Here is the help on the From_Junction method
