I'm pretty new to python and I have a table in a geodatabase that contains info on data sources, names, targets and a date field. I have a script that copies features based on a user's input, e.g. if ft_ID ==1. then copy features. I want to update the date field based on the affected/copied features row that the "copy features" was executed, and I don't know how to. (e/g. If I copy feature with ID as "1", update the corresponding date field for today/whatever day I copy that field). I just know I may need to use an update cursor.
I was playing around with the update cursor, but only got it to work to update current date for all features. This is how it looks like so far.
