I am trying to calculate a field based on derived values within a python script. I keep getting the following error, though:
"Empty value for ObjectID = 3005
The calculated value is invalid for the row with ObjectID = 3005. For example, the calculated value may be too large for the field or you may be trying to add a string to a number field. This row will not be updated."
The script runs through every single feature and returns an error message identical to the one above for each feature.
# Calculate Region # Set local variables inTable = fiberFeatures inField = "ProjectRegion" expression = region # Execute CalculateField arcpy.CalculateField_management(inTable, inField, expression, "VB")
All variables check out just fine when I print them in the ArcMap Python window, and the field within my feature class is of text type. The region is a simple two letter code such as "NC", "NE", "SW", etc...
I've tried with various combinations of alternatives, such as adding single/double quotes around region, I've added single/double/triple quotes around expression within the CalculateField function, and I've tried entering the variable straight into the function.
The only help I can find through internet searches that pertains exactly to what I'm doing is HERE, but it is a little different and I'm not sure how to make it apply to my situation.
I'm working on a Windows 7 machine and I'm running ArcGIS Standard version 10.3.0.4322
