Hi all

I would like to store in my C drive a SDE connection file and call it in a python scrip.

For example

MyConnection = "C:\\<mypath>\\<myconnectionfile>.sde"

How can I do that?

thanks

Hi Jose,

You can run Create ArcSDE Connection File tool.

Best,

SDE connection files are stored by default in your application data profile directory.

10.0
os.path.join(os.getenv("APPDATA"), r"ESRI\Desktop10.0\ArcCatalog")


You can copy these to whatever directory you would like.
