I have a question about Pyscripter in which I am trying to understand.


Suppose if I set up a script within Pycripter and hit the run button to check for any errors.  You know if you copy the script from somewhere and paste it in Pyscripter and run it and sometimes Pyscripter does not understand but if you save it and load it in Python Window it would run fine.

Why are they both different ?


Here is the example:


Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "C:\workspace\", line 12, in <module>

    mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT")

NameError: name 'arcpy' is not defined


I understand that the error is because Pyscripter does not understand CURRENT because it is the way that Python window understands it.
