I am having trouble with the arcpy.Exists() function in a script to check the existence of a table in a personal geodatabase. When I test in the ArcToolbox Python window, I get the correct result, True, for a table that exists. When I use the same commands in a stand-alone script, regardless of how I construct the path string, it always returns False for the table. I also tested just the geodatabase, and it returns True, so it is not having trouble finding the geodatabase itself.
Below is the code from the script. When I run from the interactive window, I just remove the print statement.
This script returns:
Here is screenshot of the interactive window:
I'm hoping that the solution is something very obvious that I am just missing right now! Thanks for any help.
