I'm not having any success sorting an arcpy.da.SearchCursor by the SHAPE Area values. No errors but it doesn't sort descending from my testing.
Anyone able to confirm this or offer a suggestion?
with arcpy.da.SearchCursor(clip_fc,['SHAPE@AREA','POLYGON_NM'],sql_clause=(None,'ORDER BY SHAPE.STArea() DESC')) as clipcur:
for cliprow in clipcur:
areaval = cliprow
