Where am I going wrong here.


countiesFeatureClass = r"E:/ArcGISProjects/CountySelection/adminjk_NWTL@Rack30.sde/Counties_1_Dissolved"

queryCounties = arcpy.SelectLayerByAttribute_management(countiesFeatureClass,
                                                        '"FIPS2"=3 OR "FIPS2"=12')

# Write the selected features to a new featureclass
arcpy.CopyFeatures_management(queryCounties, 'countiesSelected')


Traceback (most recent call last):
