I am modifying a script suggested in a prior thread.

I want to be able to select a line, determine if the ARCLENGTH field has a value greater than zero, return that value if greater than zero, if not return the value from the Shape_Length field.

The script runs with no errors or results. 

import arcpy  mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument ("CURRENT") df = arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames (mxd)[0]  lyr = arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd, "Lot_Lines", df)[0]  for lyr in arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd):  tlyr = lyr  dsc = arcpy.Describe(tlyr)  sel_set = dsc.FIDSet  if dsc.shapeType == "Line":   if len(sel_set) > 0: #If ARCLENGTH value > 0           arcpy.AddMessage(str(ARCLENGTH)) #Return ARCLENGTH value   else:    arcpy.AddMessage(str(Shape_Length)) #Return Shape_Length value
