My Python is a bit rusty at this point and what I thought was a simple script has me hung up for some reason.
I have table of parcel data which includes "qualifiers" noting whether or not a particular record is a condo, a billboard, or cell tower for instance. For the purposes of an analysis I would like to perform, I have added a new "Yes/No" field which is to simply note whether or not a particular record is a condo. Here is the rub. The 'qualifier' for each condo unit has a unique number as a part of the string, meaning that it doesn't simply have a "C", it can be "C007K" or "C127U". No qualifier is duplicated when it comes to condos.
I need a python script that will recognize that first character in the string as a "C" and subsequently note a "Yes" in the new field I have added to the table.
Any help you folks can throw my way would be great. If not, a smack in the head to jog my brain!
