I feel like there's a very simple answer to this because no matter how much I searched I couldn't find one, however I'm pretty much brand new to gdb's, have mostly just used shapefiles up until now and I'm having trouble getting python to access the table of/a shapefile within a geodatabase. Here is the script I'm writing currently, can someone give me some direction here?
import arcpy # Set workspace arcpy.env.workspace = "C:\Users\tmc18\Desktop\comp_orps\NYS_Wells.gdb" # Define input feature layer & wells orps09 = "C:\Users\tmc18\Desktop\comp_orps\centroids\madirps_point_Layer.lyr" wells = "C:\Users\tmc18\Desktop\comp_orps\NYS_Wells.gdb\Madison_DEC_Well_Logs_3_14_14_MASTER_COPY.dbf" wellshp = "C:\Users\tmc18\Desktop\comp_orps\NYS_Wells.gdb\Madison_DEC_Well_Logs_3_14_14_MASTER_COPY.shp" # Define fields cursors will require county = "County" # Create search cursor with arcpy.da.SearchCursor(wells, [county]) as cursor: for row in cursor: if county == "MADISON": arcpy.SelectLayerByLocation_management(orps09, [within_a_distance, "1 km", add_to_selection]) cursor.next(row) else: continue
I'm getting errors because within the gdb, the dbf and shapefiles don't exist. Since I see them there in ArcCatalog I thought it might work anyways, but obviously that is not the case.
Many thanks in advance for your help,
