Had a basic script to iterate through a folder, containing subfolders, then geodatabases, to extract feature classes with a specified name, then append that feature class into a new geodatabase. Worked fine for a bunch of point features, then tried it for a series of line features, and it keeps breaking with
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\proj\bathy\code\exportcontours.py", line 22, in <module>
File "C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.5\ArcPy\arcpy\management.py", line 2586, in CopyFeatures
ExecuteError: Failed to execute. Parameters are not valid.
ERROR 000725: Output Feature Class: Dataset W:\Gisdata\Fish\Proj\Bathymetry\contourmrg.shp already exists.
Failed to execute (CopyFeatures)
I don't know where this offending shapefile is coming from! Help......
Script is as follows:
top_folder = r"W:\Gisdata\Fish\Proj\Bathymetry"
output = r"W:\Gisdata\Fish\Proj\Bathymetry\contourmrg.gdb"
contlist = [ ]
for path, dirs, files in os.walk(top_folder):
for d in dirs:
if not d.endswith(".gdb"):
gdb_path = os.path.join(path, d)
arcpy.env.workspace = gdb_path
all_fcs = arcpy.ListFeatureClasses()
for fds in arcpy.ListDatasets('','feature'):
for fc in arcpy.ListFeatureClasses('','',fds):
for a in all_fcs:
print "Exported %s" % a
print "Exported the following feature classes %s" % contlist
