I am creating a python tool that will be used by multiple people, part of the python tool I am creating I want to run a Statistics_analysis report in_memory.

I don't need to save it (just view it once) and our departments shared folder location has spaces in it name so I couldn't save it here even if I wanted to since you can't save info tables to a path with any spaces.

The tool works perfectly except for the fact the layer just disappear once the tool is complete.

arcpy.Statistics_analysis(r'GROUP\POINTS\GPS Pipe Point', r"in_memory\MN__Table", 'COLLECTIONDATE FIRST;COLLECTIONDATE LAST', 'GPSNUMBER')

Are you running this tool in ArcMap or Pro? I believe once you close out of the program the In_memory is deleted.

Do you have a arcpy.Delete_management("in_memory\MN__Table") at the end of you script?

Your best bet is to write\export the report out then the next time you run the script overwrite it.

You could save it to the scratch fgdb.
