using rfairhur24 very helpful blog on "Turbo Charging Data Manipulation with Python Cursors and Dictionaries", I have managed to create two separate libraries to compare to a cursors:
Comparison 1: Returns records that are in table 'A' but not in Feature Class (FC) 'B' with the output being a list of fields from table 'A' and a field stating that the record in table 'A" might need to be deleted. results in 4 records.
Comparison 2: To identify changed areas in table 'A' and FC 'B', with the output being key value and acreage from FC 'B'. results in 11 records.
using insertRow and setValue, I can get either of the cursor comparisons to write to Table 'c'. I can't get the script to write the first comparison and then write the second comparison, resulting in a change table with the two types of changes totaling 15 records.
I can hack code pretty good, but I obviously have a logic and reasoning issue when creating new code...
any help is greatly appreciated!!
