I need to create a python script (or model) that would first rename all the feature datasets in a gdb. The feature dataset is in a set format and I need to change the prefix of the dataset.
For example: from "H2611111:xxx" to "gen26_xxx" - where xxx is the string that I need to keep and prefix of "H2611111" is a constant that I need to replace with "gen26_".
Once this is completed, I would then need to rename each feature class inside each renamed dataset. The feature classes needs to be prefixed with the newly renamed dataset separated by an underscore.
in dataset gen26_xxx: from "test1" to "gen26_xxx_test1" from "test2" to "gen26_xxx_test2"
in dataset gen26_zzz: from "new1" to "gen26_zzz_new1"
I am new to python (and model building), if anyone has any helpful insights, that would be greatly appreciated. I am using ArcGIS 10 and 9.3.1
