Based on my understanding of the ArcGIS path structure, a feature class inside a feature dataset inside a geodatabase can be accessed by the following:
Where Sandwich is the feature dataset and Cheese is the feature class.
In a python script, I want to construct this full path, so that I can check it using arcpy.Exists(x). I have the following variables (pseudocode):
WSpace = C:\Menu\Lunch.gdb\ FDSName = Sandwich FCName = Cheese
Concatenating WSpace and FDSName gives the correct path to the feature dataset. What I need help with is tacking FCName onto the end. I would think the following code would work, but it renders a space instead of the backslash character:
fullPath = WSpace + FDSName + r"\" + FCName
Instead of r"\", I have also tried "\", and "/", but they all render a space. This seems like a simple syntax problem. Any pointers would be appreciated.
