I take an attempt to how fieldmapping is working according to the arcgis desktop help on FieldMapping(arcpy). But it gives me following error. Can you give me a help to solve it.


>>> import arcpy
>>> from arcpy import env
>>> env.workspace = r"E:\Gampaha\51027202\CM51027202.gdb\CM51027202"
>>> infc1 = "CNT_PT"
>>> infc2 = "CNT_Anno"
>>> fieldmappings = arcpy.FieldMappings()
>>> fldmap1 = arcpy.FieldMap()
>>> fldmap2 = arcpy.FieldMap()
>>> vt = arcpy.ValueTable()
>>> fieldmappings.addTable(infc1)
>>> fldmap1.addInputField(infc1)

Traceback (most recent call last):
