Hello, I thought I would post a question I am having to see if Python can work with what I'm trying to accomplish. I know Python at the most basic level so any help would be appreciated. I am trying to select the appropriate township, range, section, quarter, and quarter quarter section data from a separate table that contains what I am wanting queried. In the most Lehman terms possible, I have one data set of PLSS data and then a separate table that has a column (attribute) of specific locations such as T 1 S R 3 W Section 27 or NWSW, NWSE, NENW, NESW, NESE, SWNE, SWSW, SWSE, SENW, SESW, SESE. What I am trying to accomplish is I want to generate an easy way of selecting my PLSS data from this table of attributes so I do not have to find them individually. I hope this makes sense.

Thank you kindly for any help!
