I can't get the following to work for me. It's exactly what I need!

 

Finding distance between consecutive points using ArcGIS Desktop? - Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange 

 

I have access to  desktop 10 and 10.4, I have tried it on a couple different shapefiles and get vague error messages.  Does the coordinates system matter?  does the name of the field matter?  My understanding is if I paste the code in the right places and choose python as the parser I should get the distances between the points in my shapefile.

 

The data points are the location of eagles
