I am using SelectLayerByLoctation to select polygons that are completely within other polygons. When I run the geoprocessing item in Phython I receive a different record count than when I run the same geoprocessing item in ArcGIS Desktop. I use layer files to create the selections in Python code. Does anyone know why the record count would be off when running the same geoprocessor different ways? The record count shows a difference of 31 records. There are not any existing selections on the layers; I am doing a NEW_SELECTION.
