In order to do a network analysis without altering the existing data, I am creating a new GDB that will then have the 3 feature classes I need created within and then the data appended to it. However, when I try to create the feature class in my script, I get an error saying invalid characters. I looked up the error but couldn't derive a solution. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Here is my script:
outLocation = copied_Geodatabase
fiberFC = 'Fiber'
fiberTemplate = arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd, 'Fiber Segments')
fiber_geometry = 'POLYLINE'
arcpy.CreateFeatureclass_management(outLocation, fiberFC, fiber_geometry, fiberTemplate)
