I would appreciate help from the board.  This is a shortened version of a larger script but this is where the problem seems to lie.  I get the error below even though these layers exist in the mxd.  Ive also run these from arccatalog.  In that case, they usually work, but a couple of times they did not.  That leads me to believe its an SDE issue.  Im running 10, SV2.

ERROR 000732: Input Feature Layer: Dataset FLUM does not exist or is not supported
ERROR 000732: Selecting Features: Dataset ZoningCases does not exist or is not supported
Failed to execute (SelectLayerByLocation).
