I need help setting up an if-than-else within a if-else statement. I need the code i need to check if selected features has any text inside the AddressID field if it does have any text inside the field i need it to by pass the with arcpy.da.SearchCursor and the with arcpy.da.UpdateCursor and move on to the next process. if doesn't have any text inside the field i need it to preform the with arcpy.da.SearchCursor and the with arcpy.da.UpdateCursor. I would appreciate any help.


import arcpy, os  
from arcpy import env  
env.workspace = r"C:\temp\python\test.gdb"  
arcpy.env.qualifiedFieldNames = False          
arcpy.env.overwriteOutput = True    
BldSelection = "BuildingFootprints"           
Bld = arcpy.env.workspace + os.sep + "BuildingFootprints" #target point feature class    
BldCount = int(arcpy.GetCount_management(Bld).getOutput(0))    
dsc = arcpy.Describe(BldSelection)     
selection_set = dsc.FIDSet             
if len(selection_set) == 0:           
    print "There are no features selected"      
elif BldCount >= 1:    
    #Gets the highest AddressID and calculates new point to assign new highest AddressID    
    Bld_list = []          
    with arcpy.da.SearchCursor(Bld, ["Bld_ID"]) as cursor:          
        for row in cursor:  
                if "Bld" in row[0]:  
            except TypeError:          
    del cursor          
    print Bld_list  
    Bld_ID = Bld_list[-1] + 1          
    with arcpy.da.UpdateCursor(BldSelection, "Bld_ID") as rows:           
        for row in rows:              
            row[0] = 'Bld' + str(Bld_ID)  
            Bld_ID += 1                      
        del row           
        del rows
