Question asked by wwmiller68 Champion on May 22, 2015

I created this code in hopes of sharing. One of my friends has Windows 8 and Arc 10.2.2, I have Windows 7 and Arc 10.2.1, it works great for me but fails for him below is his error message and below that is the code. Attached is the ode and all the pieces needed to make it run. Any help would be appreciated.
