ArcGIS 10.3.1; Python 2.7.11

The file DOES exist but reporting that it does not. The syntax looks correct to my newbie eyes.

 

******************************************************************************************************************

import arcpy

 

arcpy.env.workspace = "C:\\Users\\kkirkeby\\Desktop\\GIS-4080\\Lesson4_Data\\Lesson4_Data"

 

#Variables

out_folder_path = 'C:\\Users\\kkirkeby\\Desktop\\GIS-4080\\Lesson4_Data\\Lesson4_Data'

gdb_name = 'L4E5'

gdb_fullPath = out_folder_path +'/' + gdb_name

fclist = arcpy.ListFeatureClasses()

fcIn = 0

fcOut = 0

 

# Create gdb if it doesn't exist.

if arcpy.Exists(gdb_fullPath):

    print "Geodatabase already exist"

else:

       print "Geodatabase does not exist. Creating..."

       print arcpy.Exists(gdb_fullPath)

       print gdb_fullPath

#    arcpy.CreateFileGDB_management(out_folder_path, gdb_name)

******************************************************************************************************************

 

Output:

================================ RESTART ================================

 

Geodatabase does not exist. Creating...

False

C:\Users\kkirkeby\Desktop\GIS-4080\Lesson4_Data\Lesson4_Data/L4E5
