I am currently working on ArcMap v9.2 (I know...we are upgrading to 10 very soon) and I am having an issue running tools on layers within a current map document from a python script. For example, I want to use the select by attribute tool within a python script and have it display the selection within the current map document. Is this something I can do using the arcpy.mapping module or will I need to use VBA and/or

Any help is much appreciated!
