Hi at all,
i have develop a python script that execute a query to table into sde connection (DB Oracle).
This my code:
from arcpy import env
env.workspace = ("Database Connections/TEST.sde")
sdeConn = arcpy.ArcSDESQLExecute("Database Connections/TEST.sde")
value = 'V'
sql = "select * from TEST.CATEGORIES WHERE TIP_SER = " + value
sdeReturn = sdeConn.execute(sql)
except Exception, ErrorDesc:
sdeReturn = False
But when i run i recive this error: RuntimeError: Object: Could not open SDE workspace
The sde connection works fine into ArcMap and also i have try other simple connection by arcpy for print a list table and works fine.
So why this error?
Your code is quite a bit different than the examples in the help topic ArcSDESQLExecute—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop
I would at least put your attempt at a connection within the try-except block and check the parameters, some of them don't appear to be optional. Script functionality within arcmap is not the same as that outside that environment, there is nothing assumed or available, and anything that needs to be specified must be.
thanks for your response.
I have seen the example that you have attached and as Syntax require some parameters not optional, but the .sde contain itself all the parameter request:
server, port, istance, use and psw etc
Example if i set sde connection as workspace for a list table the script works so i suppose that the connection is open:
arcpy.env.workspace = ("Database Connections/TEST.sde")
tables = arcpy.ListTables()
for t in tables:
We just use the sde file directly. So just c:\temp\db.sde for example. Just make a connection then copy and paste it to any directory. We have a Connections directory with links to all our dbs.
I see two things as possibly being a problem.
1. value = 'V'
The value in the sql syntax will need to be in quotes so change this to:
value = "'V'" (to make more clear it's... " ' V ' ")
2. If TEST.CATEGORIES is a feature class with a shape column "select * from..." will not work. Change this to:
sql = "select fld1, fld2, fld3 from TEST.CATEGORIES WHERE TIP_SER = " + value
Let me know if changing these helps.
the query with value = " 'V' " is ok.
Now the sdeConn = arcpy.ArcSDESQLExecute("Database Connections/TEST.sde") works fine also without the query.
I have copied and pasted my code into other ArcGIS enviromets and works fine.
I suppose that on my machine after istall of python 3 there is something to wrong.
Thanks to all
I'm having the same issue for just trying to run one lame arcpy.da.ListDatabaseSequences()
It works on a normal file gdb, but I can't do it on our sde database. ArcGIS Pro 2.7
