Using python to replace subtypes with descriptions

Question asked by dirknpeterson on Oct 29, 2014

I have a workflow that wil use a definition query to select a subset of point data that will be exported from SDE to a 3rd party.  One of the attributes is a subtype where there are 14 subtypes.  When I export the data, the subtype remains as a number rather than a description.  What I need to do is come up with a python expression to replace all of the different subtype numbers with the descriptions.  I have found where I can replace subtype with the description, but how do I do all of them at once?

 

This is what I came up with:

!Fieldname!.replace("subtype1","description1").("subtype2","description2")........("subtype14","description14)

 

When I run this, I get a ERROR 000539

 

I'm new to Python so any help would be appreciated.
