I am looking for create a sql expression regarding point feature class and selection based on 'Name' field to pass to arcpy.sa.CostDistance() param[0].

similar to:
savepath = env.workspace = r'G:\Xcel\Route Tool\Potter\Scratch.gdb' weighted_Raster = r'G:\Xcel\Route Tool\Potter\Scratch.gdb\weighted_Raster' fc = r'G:\Xcel\Route Tool\Potter\Data.gdb\Subs_w_dist' Field = 'Name' destValue = 'Coulter' where_clause = createSQL(Field, destValue)   #Calculate the least accumulative cost distance for each cell to the nearest source over a cost surface. outCostDist = arcpy.sa.CostDistance(where_clause, weighted_Raster,"", 'Output_Backlink') outCostDist.save('distance_Raster')
