Hi there, I've installed PyCharm as per the the ESRI course "Python for Everyone" and was able to get through the entire course without problem.
However, when I try to run a script I am starting to write on Pycharm, though it runs with no errors, I am getting odd results. I test the script statements in Python window and am able to get the results I am expecting, but when I run them through Pycharm I get a completely different result.
Can somebody help me with this?
This is the simple piece of code I am running:
workspace = r'C:\Users\paperspace\Google Drive\QTA\19010_PDX Zoning\PDXZoning\PDXZoning.gdb'
outWorkspace = r'C:\Users\paperspace\Google Drive\QTA\19010_PDX Zoning\PDXZoning\PDXZoned.gdb'
arcpy.env.workspace = workspace
# set the target address taxlot
# consider capitalizing whatever user inputs
address = "1519 SE MORRISON ST"
field = arcpy.AddFieldDelimiters('taxlots', 'SITEADDR')
query = field + " LIKE '%" + address + "%'"
# select the target taxlot
arcpy.SelectLayerByAttribute_management('taxlots', 'NEW_SELECTION', query)
# test output--you can remove this once done testing
outFC_temp = os.path.join(outWorkspace, 'tempARE09')
When I copy and paste into Python Window, I get the result I am expecting, which is the selection of a specific taxlot in a cadastral map with the SQL query.
When I run this same script in Pycharm, the script runs fine, but gives me a completely different result (a different taxlot, strangely). Other geoprocessing commands don't seem to do anything, either.
I can't tell if I am passing the SQL query incorrectly, writing the output file incorrectly, or if I have incorrectly pointed to the correct Python interpreter. However, the script works fine in Python Window and
This is my Pycharm interpreter, which I believe is pointing to the right spot:
However, when I double click on the executable from explorer I get this:
Which seems weird to me but everything else seems to run fine.
Any help would be appreciated.
