# Script:

import arcpy, os
## Set the workspace
arcpy.env.workspace= "K:/COUNTY_MUKEY/test.gdb"

fcs = arcpy.ListFeatureClasses()

# Create the multi-value string for the Analysis Union tool
fcs.reset
# Get the first feature class name and set the string variable
fc = fcs.next()
inputs = fc
# Get the next name and start the loop
fc = fcs.next()
while fc: # While the fc name is not empty
    inputs = inputs + ";" + fc
    fc= fcs.next()
print inputs
    # Process: Merge...
try:
    arcpy.Merge_management(inputs,"K:/STATE_ MUKEY/REA.gdb/soilmu_in")
    print "finished"
except:
    print "error"
    print arcpy.GetMessage()
    del arcpy


# Error
