Semi-Automated Field Mapping for Append

Question asked by DrColgate on Sep 4, 2014

When using arcpy.Append_management and using "NO_TEST" we only map to those fields that are identical.

 

However when we use arcpy.FieldMappings() we seem to lose all of the automatic mappings and all fields must be explicitly mapped.  Is there a way to keep the automated mapping and just map those that aren't identical OR overwrite ones that need to be updated?
