With lots of help I have a script that search my folder and gdb for featureclasses and rename them. That script works great.
The next step in my workflow will by clipping. I want the clip feature to clip all my featuresclasses in all folders and gdb’s. I am using the rename script as kind of a template.
The problem now is in a unique output name (the name of the featuresclasses in the gdb are the same (not the factor only the name).
The script I have so far is wrong but it I was hoping it could do the trick if I set it right.
So far the error is in line 10 the join is not working I do not know if the unique_name will work but that is my solution for the unique name problem.
BTW I was think about a script that looks at the extend (clip feature) first and if true then clip and if not nothing. I am over my head already and I have a script that cleans my gdb’s of empty featureclasses. So for now for my this is ok.
import os import arcpy from arcpy import env workspace = "D:\\GIS\\Zone1\\Zone1A" feature_classes =  clipfeature = "D:\\GIS\\Temp\\clip.gdb\\BorderClip" outputdatabase = "D:\\GIS\\Output\\clip.gdb" walk = arcpy.da.Walk(workspace, datatype="FeatureClass", type="All") fc_output = os.path.join(outputdatabase,filenames) unique_name = arcpy.CreateUniqueName(fc_output) for dirpath, dirnames, filenames in walk: for filename in filenames: feature_classes.append(os.path.join(dirpath, filename)) # arcpy.AddMessage("clipping: " + feature_classes) arcpy.Clip_analysis(feature_classes, clipfeature, ounique_name)
