I am trying to create a derived output using a Python script. when I run the script, I keep getting the following error:
"RuntimeError: Object: Error in setting parameter as text". I have an output folder that is an input (outFolder). I basically want to use that same folder as an output once the script has run so that I can use it in a model.
My parameters are set up like this:
input_FC = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(1)
inField = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(2)
theFName = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(3)
outFolder = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(4)
output = arcpy.SetParameterAsText(5, outFolder)
script = sys.argv
I have tried several variations of SetParameterAsText, including:
outFolder = arcpy.SetParameterAsText(5, "outFolder")
My parameter named "output" is configured as such in the script tool properties:
It is set to derived so that it will appear as an output in a model and obtained from the input parameter, outFolder (Named Feature Class in the parameter settings above). What am I doing wrong here?
