Hello,

 

It might be a simple question/solution, but I can't find the way to make my arcpy code works....

 

I have a layer that I need to add inside a group, that is inside a group already:

 

-Group1

     -SubGroup1

          -NEW LAYER

     -SubGroup1.2

-Group 2.

 

My code is more and less like this:

for layer in layers:

     if layer.longName == Group1+ "\\" + SubGroup1:

          print("------ layer goes here-------")

          targetGroupLayer = arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd, "Group1\SubGroup1", df)[0]

          arcpy.mapping.AddLayerToGroup(df, targetGroupLayer, spatialLayer, "AUTO_ARRANGE")

 

     else:

          print ("not here")

 

Where I wrote "Group1\SubGroup1" I tried: "Group1\\SubGroup1"; "Group1/SubGroup1", but I'm always getting the same error:

 

targetGroupLayer = arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd, "Group1\SubGroup1", df)[0]

IndexError: list index out of range

 

 

Any ideas how to get the subgroup inside the group??

 

Many thanks!!!
