I want to copy a table from SDE to a local file gdb.

Assuming

  SDEworkspace is the full path to the SDE database

  outGDB is the full path to the local file gdb

 

Here is the code:

   arcpy.env.workspace = SEDworkspace

   tableName = "MasterStreetName"

   outTableName = "{}\{}".format(outGDB, tableName)

   arcpy.Copy_management(tableName, outTableName)

 

Runtime error  Traceback (most recent call last):   File "<string>", line 1, in <module>   File "c:\program files (x86)\arcgis\desktop10.6\arcpy\arcpy\management.py", line 4314, in Copy     raise e ExecuteError: ERROR 000840: The value is not a Data Element. 

 

 

This script used to work and other features are copied correctly, just seem to have problem with tables.
