Complete newbie here looking for some assistance. I need to convert a shapefile into a KML file and as i do this often was looking at Python to automate it. The shapefile has a join to another database to keep it dynamic so i am having to use the "export data" to make a shapefile which i then amend the field name (alias's) and convert to KML. I have tried the featureclasstofeatureclass_conversion command but this renames the fieldnames? I have then tried makefeaturelayermanagement command but this doesnt bring across the joined fields?
