Hi there,

I am facing a strange Problem. In the following Script two Tables in an sql-Server Database should be exported.

The first one works, the second one not (I am sure it is spelled right).

import tempfile
import arcpyout

Location = tempfile.mkdtemp()
arcpy.TableToTable_conversion("../bamo.sde/bko.bkEingriffart",outLocation, "bkEingriffart.dbf")
arcpy.TableToTable_conversion("../bamo.sde/bko.bkMassnahmenbkMassnahmenZiele",outLocation, "bkMassnahmenbkMassnahmenZiele.dbf")‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
I got the Error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Users\xxx\.p2\pool\plugins\org.python.pydev_5.7.0.201704111357\pysrc\pydevd.py", line 1546, in <module>

I use ArcGIS 10.3.1 for develpoing, but the error also occurs when using ArcGIS 10.5.1.

Later the Script shell run as a geoprocessing Task on an ArcGIS for server.

Has anybody an idea?

Best Regard,

Andreas

To me it looks like you are missing a comma and some parentheses

# yours :  import tempfileimport arcpy
import tempfileimport, arcpy   #note comma...

# yours:  arcpy.TableToTable_conversion("../bamo.sde/bko.bkMassnahmenbkMassnahmenZiele",outLocation, "bkMassnahmenbkMassnahmenZiele.dbf")

arcpy.TableToTable_conversion(("../bamo.sde/bko.bkMassnahmenbkMassnahmenZiele",outLocation, "bkMassnahmenbkMassnahmenZiele.dbf"))  # note enclosing parentheses...

Just a WAG  (wild a guess...)

That should just about do it....

Thank you Joe,

some new Lines got missing, I correct that.

I do not understand the part with the parantheses TableToTable_conversion works with a single Table.

My apologies Andreas- when I first read your post I thought I saw that you were using the output of a second TableToTable function as input to a first TableToTable function.  Your use of relative paths may be problematic as well.

I'm not familiar with the use of tempfile, so my approach would be to set the out put workspace as an arcpy env variable:

import arcpy
from arcpy import env

arcpy.env.workspace = r'DriveLetter:\your\desired\path\to\output\directory'
out_ws = arcpy.env.workspace

# use a complete path to your sde connection and file name
# below is an example of one of mine

out_table = 'YourNameOfChoice.dbf'

arcpy.TableToTable_conversion(in_table,out_ws,out_table)

Unfortunately this makes no difference.

What if you comment out the first table conversion, does the second one (now the first) err out?  It is good to isolate whether it is the call itself or calling something successively that is causing an issue.

If I comment out the first T2T conversion, then the second one fails anyway.

How is bkMassnahmenbkMassnahmenZiele different than bkEingriffart in terms of structure, e.g., is one a feature class and the other one a table?

If both are just tables, my money is on permissions.  If the T2T tools can't open the table to read it, it will report it does not exist or is not supported.

New Contributor III

bkEingriffart is just a simple table, bkMassnahmenbkMassnahmenZiele  is a table to resolve an m to n relationship. Therefor it has a composite primary key.

I am having issues similar to this. Was your issues ever resolved?
