Hello

 

   I am really green in this, but I am having trouble using where_clause to select two types two different types of attributes within the same column using the Select(analysis) tool with arcpy. 

 

The way I  do it regularly using Select by Attributes windows is the following 

 

DrainClass = 'Somewhat excessively drained' OR DrainClass = 'Well drained'

 

I have tried using double quotations on the outside, but I keep getting an ExecuteError

 

ExecuteError: ERROR 000358: Invalid expression DrainClass = 'Somewhat excessively drained' OR DrainClass = 'Well drained'

 

Does anyone know how to set the correct expression in arcpy?

 

Thank you
