System: Vista, ArcGIS 9.3


I wrote a python code to AddJoin a grid shapefile (File A) to a bird range shapefile (File B).
They have a field in common (GID).

However, the error message is
ERROR 000732: Input Features: Dataset H:/temp_D/testt does not exist or is not supported
Failed to execute (MakeFeatureLayer).

Please kindly advise how to modify the code.
Thank you.
(The file location is
