Hi, I am new to the forum and to using python scripting so please forgive me if this topic has been covered. Although I was not able to find a post on this specific topic.

Is there a way to change the projection of the only dataframe in an mxd file? We have migrated our data to a new datamodel, and I am tasked with fixing all of the broken layer files in the mxd's. To add to the complication, during the datamodel upgrade we have converted our projection from NAD 27 to NAD 83.

Any insight into how to achieve this would be greatly appreciated!
