Dear all, 

I have a vector file and which attribute contains many fields. I attached the  fields arrangement are School,  Area, Student, Age, Father_Name, Mother_Name. I need to rearrange permanently the field in the attribute table. For instance, Area, Father_Name, Mother_Name, Student, School, like this way.
I found a python script, but could not explore more either it will work or not, or any other way to do it in Arcpy.

Script is below, any suggestion is appreciated . 

I also attached a below picture of the attribute field arrangement. 

import arcpy, os, sys
from arcpy import env

arcpy.env.overwriteOutput = True

inFC = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0)
outLoc = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(1)
outName = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(2)
field1 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(3)
field2 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(4)
field3 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(5)
field4 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(6)
field5 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(7)
field6 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(8)
field7 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(9)
field8 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(10)
field9 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(11)
field10 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(12)
field11 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(13)
field12 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(14)
field13 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(15)
field14 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(16)
field15 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(17)
field16 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(18)
field17 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(19)
field18 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(20)
field19 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(21)
field20 = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(22)

Is that a script you wrote or just something you found?

And when you say vector file, is there geometry or is it just an attribute table?

Also, are you stuck on 10.3 or is there any possibility of upgrading and/or using Pro?

Hi Dan Patterson thank you. I solved the problem using Q GIS.
