How to move SHP to gdb with ArcView license?
Let's cut it short, I have numerous mxd with layer coming from .SHP and various servers WMS that I need to move to a gdb. What I want is to open the mxd and run a script that select all .SHP layers in the TOC create a gdb, export the .SHP, and create a new MXD with the new path pointing to gdb.
Following is the code I wrote, but I can't have it to select only the .SHP, I tried with describe dataType but they all come out as "FeatureLayer"...need help!
# Import system modules import arcpy, datetime, os, traceback from arcpy import env # Load required toolboxes... arcpy.AddToolbox("C:\\Program Files (x86)\\ArcGIS\\Desktop10.0\\ArcToolbox\\Toolboxes\\Data Management Tools.tbx") # Get the active map document import arcpy.mapping mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument ("CURRENT") # List broken links # arcpy.mapping.ListBrokenDataSources(mxd) # Set environment settings ws = "C:\\PARK" arcpy.env.workspace = ws print("env.workspace completed successfully") installdir = arcpy.GetInstallInfo("desktop") #check GDB exist gdb_nam = "test.gdb" gdb_full_path = os.path.join(ws,gdb_nam) if os.path.exists(gdb_full_path): arcpy.Delete_management(gdb_full_path) print("GDB checked") # Execute CreateFileGDB arcpy.CreateFileGDB_management(ws, gdb_nam) print("CreateFileGDB completed successfully") outWorkspace = gdb_full_path # Iterate list =  for df in arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames (mxd): for fc in arcpy.mapping.ListLayers (mxd, "", df): if (fc.datasetName.endswith(".shp")): list.append(fc) for fc in fclist: arcpy.FeatureClassToGeodatabase_conversion(fc, gdb_full_path)
