Hello everyone.  Im very new to python. Just learning the basics right now. I really need to get to the point where I know how to automate some of these tasks I have at work. 

Anyways, I have a task right now where i need to find locations of diabase throughout the state.  I have a directory with a large number of folders (around 200) that contain personal geodatabases of each 7.5 min quadrangle.  In each mdb, there is a point shp file that has locations of different geologic features.  What I need to find out is which geodatabases contain the value "diabase" in the field "label". Is there a way to do this using python?  Any help is much appreciated.
