Hi all,


I'm still new to arcpy and python. PLEASE can somebody explain why the first two lines of code create a runtime error, but the last two lines run fine?


>>> with arcpy.da.Editor(workspace) as edit:
...     edit.startEditing(False, True)
Runtime error 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 2, in <module>
AttributeError: 'Workspace Operation object' object has no attribute 'startEditing'
>>> edit = arcpy.da.Editor(workspace)
>>> edit.startEditing(False, True)
