I am testing a simple script. I have an access database (personal geodatabase) with a bunch of tables, queries and forms. I just want to copy and paste one table:

import arcpy, traceback, sys from arcpy import env  env.workspace = r"Z:\Access_Database\Site_Facility_IORPDA_2012_MASTER_v302.mdb"  arcpy.Copy_management("WEEDS_P", "WEED")  # Alternatively, I tried to paste to a different geodatabase as well with the same error returning. # arcpy.Copy_management("WEEDS_P", r"Z:\ESRI\Figure_Sourcing\Locked_Down_Database\Access_Database\Test.mdb\WEED")

and I keep coming up with the following error:

000260 : Failed to copy <value> into <value>


While using the Copy tool, the input could not be successfully copied to its new location. This error typically occurs while copying data from one location to another.

The "in_memory" workspace is not supported as the output location.

Confirm that the output location is valid and does not contain any files that will interfere with a successful copy operation.

So, I tried to manually copy and paste from the mbd to the test .mbd and it errors out with the following:


Can anyone suggest what the issue might be?
