I'm trying to use this "Select" script from… 

but it keeps giving me the following error.


Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "<string>", line 10, in <module>

  File "c:\program files\arcgis\pro\Resources\arcpy\arcpy\", line 91, in Select

    raise e

  File "c:\program files\arcgis\pro\Resources\arcpy\arcpy\", line 88, in Select

    retval = convertArcObjectToPythonObject(gp.Select_analysis(*gp_fixargs((in_features, out_feature_class, where_clause), True)))

  File "c:\program files\arcgis\pro\Resources\arcpy\arcpy\geoprocessing\", line 506, in <lambda>

    return lambda *args: val(*gp_fixargs(args, True))

arcgisscripting.ExecuteError: Failed to execute. Parameters are not valid.ERROR 000732: Input Features: Dataset C:\arcGIS_Shared\Python\PythonTestScript.gdb\CAPatients does not exist or is not supportedFailed to execute (Select).


And Here is the script I'm using:


# Import system modules
import arcpy
# Set local variables
in_features = r"C:\arcGIS_Shared\Python\PythonTestScript.gdb\CAPatients"
out_feature_class = r"C:\arcGIS_Shared\Python\PythonTestScript.gdb\Geocoded2"
where_clause = '"Age" = \'62\''
# Execute Select
arcpy.Select_analysis(in_features, out_feature_class, where_clause)


In the script above, the datatype for "Age" is "long"; but I have also tried replacing "Age" with "Zip_Code", which is "text".


Anyone have any ideas what I'm doing wrong or missing?
