Copy layer appearence from one layer to another

Discussion created by vanjay011379 on Mar 23, 2011
Hello,

I have a series of directories each including a file with a same name "intersect.shp".  I would like to create a layer for one of these shape files and copy it to the other shape files.  I am using Python and ArcGIS 10

I was wondering how to use Python to do so?  I was considering the code at http://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/4882/how-do-i-add-a-shapefile-in-arcgis-via-python.

Also, what function calls would I use?  I am assumming usage of the following to start. 

MakeFeatureLayer_management (in_features, out_layer, {where_clause}, {workspace}, {field_info})
SaveToLayerFile_management (in_layer, out_layer, {is_relative_path})

Thanks in advance!
