Field does not get updated with Geoprocessing Service

Discussion created by ionarawilson on Sep 27, 2013

Can anybody tell why the field gets updated when I run this script in ArcMap but not when I run a geoprocessing service? Thanks

#Import modules
import os, sys, arcpy, traceback, arcgisscripting

gp = arcgisscripting.create(10.1)

Stewardship = gp.GetParameterAsText(0)

Officevar = "\"College Station\""

# This is to send the data input to the database
with arcpy.da.UpdateCursor(Stewardship, ("City")) as rows:
        # row comes back as a tuple in the order specified here, so Office is row[0], Forester is row[1]
        for row in rows:
            row[0] = Officevar
