I am attempting to read an attribute field's default value and write it to a csv. I was able to write all the properties except for the default value. I am referencing this online resouce:
http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//018z0000004n000000

If there is something that I am missing or if anyone knows of an alternate solution to help accomplish then I would really appreciate it if you could share it with the community.
