If then/else python to meet criteria or end script

Question asked by buehlerd on Jan 20, 2017

I am going to be real honest I am not sure how to format the script in order to get it to check if there are "new" features and then process it, or just move on if there are no new ones.  Now that i have a working reverse geocoding script, I would like to take it to that that level. I am trying to minimize the locking time so that is why it exports out a subset first then joins it back and field calculates.  If there is a better way to do this I am all ears.  Otherwise, below is the code I have, and it will be run as a scheduled task.  Any help would be much appreciated.


Line 27 is what i am asking
