I wrote and ran a simple script last year - it cycled through some line features, buffered them and then intersected with some other lines - it all worked fine.
I'm now trying to tweak the file to use a larger buffer, and it's not finding the database I am using to manage the loop and store the results.
rows = arcpy.SearchCursor("C:\\CEDAR_GIS\\SPEEDY3_GPS_DATA\\shapefiles\\Analysis\\Intersections.mdb\\final_to_school_routes_LINES")
results in this error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\CEDAR_GIS\SPEEDY3_GPS_DATA\shapefiles\Analysis\GISbuff-GPSline_IntersectionTS.py", line 29, in <module> rows = arcpy.SearchCursor("C:\\CEDAR_GIS\\SPEEDY3_GPS_DATA\\shapefiles\\Analysis\\Intersections.mdb\\final_to_school_routes_LINES") #opens search cursor on Overlays_to_run File "C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.1\arcpy\arcpy\__init__.py", line 1133, in SearchCursor return gp.searchCursor(dataset, where_clause, spatial_reference, fields, sort_fields) File "C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.1\arcpy\arcpy\geoprocessing\_base.py", line 359, in searchCursor self._gp.SearchCursor(*gp_fixargs(args, True))) IOError: "C:\CEDAR_GIS\SPEEDY3_GPS_DATA\shapefiles\Analysis\Intersections.mdb\final_to_school_routes_LINES" does not exist
But that table is in that database, and when I ran the script last year there was no error. I have since upgraded to ArcGIS 10.1 with SP1, which I think meant an upgrade to python. Has there been a change in the handling of .mdb files, or am I doing something stupid?
