How to concatenate 'str' and 'int' objects with python

Hi All,


I'm trying in a GDB using Arc10.2 to run a field calculate, into a text field using: "!SHAPE.firstpoint.X! &" "& !SHAPE.firstpoint.Y!" (without quotes) but this gives an error: 00539

  • cannot concatenate 'str' and 'int' objects

What would be the correct syntax?

I believe I need to cast but not sure how.

So far my workaround is to create a StartX and StartY field then combine them into another field StartXY, but this can be time consuming with a large number of records. There should be a better way.


!SHAPE.firstpoint.X! = 534792.9044

!SHAPE.firstpoint.Y! = 6917050.0155

End result should look like this:

534792.9044 6917050.0155
