I need to come up with a Python code to automate a map creation process but I am a little bit of lack of python knowledge. Any help would be much appreciated. My problem is that I have a 20 mxd file which need an update process in timely manner(this is just one project) and pdf creation for each mxd then appended pdfs. At the moment, I have a tool which creates map index shape file for at the layout view for each mxd.
I want to :
Loop through the index shape file's attribute (first one in the table of contents)
Select or zoom into first row then
-get mxd name from attribute table(its available in attribute table) -specify the destinatin folder to save the mxd(i think that I can get that in attribute table as well) or specify it in the code. -save mxd to specified location -specify the destinatin folder to save the pdf file -save pdf to specified location
Move to next row and do the same process in step 2
- When reached the last row append all pdf files created into same locaition as pdfs
