So I am just testing this function by itself before I put it in my loop. So I run the test (Python 2.7) and I get a result saying that it was create, but I do not see it in folder I assigned it to. I even tried it on the arcpy box in arcgis 10.2 and I still can't find the layer. I double checked the path I directed it too but nothing.
import arcpy import os arcpy.env.workspace = 'C://Users/my/workspace/' arcpy.env.overwriteOutput = True inPut = 'C://Users/my/workspace/' allStorms = 'allstorms.shp' acrpy.MakeFeatureLayer_management (allstorms, inPut+'group1')
