I am trying to repair a Python script that has thrown the error:

<type 'exceptions.TypeError'>: exceptions must be classes, instances, or strings (deprecated), not unicode

The part of the code it is referring to is

for upload in uploads:         try:             process(upload,method,doforcenow)         except Arcgisscripting.ExecuteError:      #<< Line where error is reported             msgs = gp.GetMessage(0)             msgs += gp.GetMessages(2)             gp.AddError(msgs)             logMsg("\tError: "+ msgs)             errorOccurred(True)             pass         except:             # Get the traceback object             tb = sys.exc_info()[2]             tbinfo = traceback.format_tb(tb)[0]             pymsg = tbinfo + "\n" + str(sys.exc_type)+ ": " + str(sys.exc_value)             gp.AddError(pymsg)             logMsg("\tError: " +pymsg)             pass


The Python version is 2.5 and it is using ESRI v9.3.1 SP1.

I found a web page that had the Arcgisscripting.ExecuteError part of the exception single quoted.
That didn't work. It simply reported that the exception couldn't be handled.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this error?

Thanks

Yes! That was it. The arcgisscripting shouldn't be capitalised.

Thanks

9.3 was a while ago, but is arcgisscripting capitalized?
