Hey guys,

I working to get a report to run from a script and I can not figure out what I'm doing wrong. Any help you would have would be great. Thanks!

import arcpy
mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(r"G:\Public\Storm Projects\NPDES II Permit\Detention Basin Inspections\NEW_Detention Basins.mxd")
df = arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(mxd, "Layers")[0]
lyr = arcpy.mapping.ListTableViews(mxd, "ArcGISSDE.SDE.Detention_Basin_Inspection", df)[0]
arcpy.SelectLayerByAttribute_management(lyr, "SUBSET_SELECTION", "[Date]= '12/1/2015'")
print ('Test')
arcpy.mapping.ExportReport(lyr,
                           r"M:\BrianLomas\RelationShipClassTest\DetentionBasin1.rlf",
                           r"C:\Users\blomas\Desktop\ReportTest.pdf",
                           "SELECTED")
del mxd

I currently get this error...

So, I finally got this bad boy to work. Thanks to both of you guys. Below is the script that worked but I had to run it as a python script with no parameters and in the foreground. On to figuring out the next few steps. Thanks again.

import arcpy
mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(r"G:\Public\Storm Projects\NPDES II Permit\Detention Basin Inspections\NEW_Detention Basins.mxd")
df = arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(mxd, "Layers")[0]
lyr = arcpy.mapping.TableView ("ArcGISSDE.SDE.Detention_Basin_Inspection")
arcpy.mapping.ExportReport(lyr,
                           r"M:\BrianLomas\RelationShipClassTest\DetentionBasin1.rlf",
                           r"C:\Users\blomas\Desktop\ProjectReport.pdf")
del mxd

Is the "ArcGIDSDE.SDE.Detention_Basic_Inspection" a single layer in the MXD?

yes, it's actually a related table if that makes a difference.

Is there a reason you're using "SUBSET_SELECTION" selection method on that table?  Does the user select records prior to running this tool?

Also, I would make that layer a single variable in the tool.  Right now the variable 'lyr' is assigned to an arcpy function of ListTableViews.

I'm trying to get it to just output a few pages because I haven't been able to get it to output anything. So, I was wondering if maybe it was an "out of memory" issue I was getting when I ran it from view\run report in arcmap. I was hoping to eventually build a script I can run on a handful of pages at a time because of the memory issue. 

Right now, the selection is built into the script...

....

"SUBSET_SELECTION", "[Date]= '12/1/2015'")

Can you duplicate that selection in the Python GUI in that MXD without error?

Yea, I wondered that. I added that script to a toolbox and ran it from there as suggested but I get the same error.
