comment How to separate shared watersheds using ArcGIS for Desktop or QGIS?
You say at the start of your question that this is the same as (i.e. a duplicate of) another question. If you want to proceed with this as a separate Q&A, I think you need to edit your question to say that, while there is much in common with an earlier question, you are here going to describe your own question in detail and explain why the answer on the other question is not working for you.

Please use the edit button to revise your question with details that people are requesting. There is no guarantee that potential answerers will read any comments.

comment How to add multiple feature classes from gdb to mxd using ArcPy?
Would you be able to include a code snippet that works up to the point where you say "selecting all the feature class at once, *ppt is not work", please?

comment How to add multiple feature classes from gdb to mxd using ArcPy?
From a suggested edit that I just saw it looks like you may have inadvertently created two accounts. I recommend that you follow the instructions to merge them ASAP.

comment Troubleshooting ERROR 000814: Invalid file type from arcpy.TableToExcel()?
@DWynne That was what I figured. For this question it seemed like a "discussion in comments" was taking the place of comments being used to suggest problems in the question as asked, and then the asker addressing those via edits to the question rather than a convoluted comment trail (aka why I tired of discussion forums).

comment Troubleshooting ERROR 000814: Invalid file type from arcpy.TableToExcel()?
@DWynne That may be a lesson to the asker about how important it is to keep editing the question to keep it in sync with testing and advice being given. meta.gis.stackexchange.com/a/3353

comment Making fields conditional using ArcGIS for Desktop?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Would you be able to edit your question to let us know which GIS software and version you are using, please?

comment Update Data Driven Pages Index layer via Python
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Rather than saying "ends up with an error at the UpdateLayer line" it would be helpful if you could include the precise text of that error. There is an edit button beneath your question that enables you top provide additional/revised details at any time.

comment Exporting image
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Would you be able to edit your question to include the GIS software and precise steps used to create your map with annotation and then export it, please?

comment How to link polygon features in one layer to polygon features in another, using largest overlap in QGIS or GRASS
It is your question and not one that I can offer any easy advice on beyond that linked from our help center as What makes a good question?

comment i can not publish my openlayers map, and i dont know why
I've closed this as a duplicate of your earlier unanswered question to which this seems to be a followup/clarification. Please be aware that there is an edit button provided beneath your questions that will enable you to revise them with additional details at any time. I recommend that you return to the original question to improve that rather than working on this one. If you have not already taken the Tour please do so.

comment How to link polygon features in one layer to polygon features in another, using largest overlap in QGIS or GRASS
@theej In light of the other solution that you have found, which you suggest may be sub-optimal, it may be worth you using the edit button to revise your question with more details of what you have tried to answer your own question.

comment How to add multiple feature classes from gdb to mxd using ArcPy?
I agree with @FaridCher that ArcPy is overkill for this - I would use a slightly different method of using the Contents panel of the Catalog window to multiple-select the feature classes and then drag and drop them into your map.

comment Difference between Geographic and Projected coordinate systems?
@ChrisSnow This was a messy Q&A because it started with two questions (see Tour for desirability of one question per question), then the first was answered and accepted by the asker, then the asker changed the question to be the other one. If this Q&A does not answer what you need to know, which I think is the answer to the original second question, then I recommend researching/asking it as a new question.

comment Vector tiles in ArcGIS
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. I think this is a question that would benefit from pictures showing what you input, what you were expecting and what you got as output. They should be easy to include by using the edit button beneath your question.

comment how to publish my own openlayers map to be readable by others?
As it stands your question does not seem to involve either QGIS or the ArcGIS platform so I am removing those tags. If it does, just edit your question to describe their relevance to it.

comment Populate field by numbering different types of roads using field calculator
Questions like this have been asked here many times. The one that I have made this a duplicate of seems to differ only in that it is returning values to a Text field (hence the quotes around the values). If you are returning values to a numeric field then those quotes should be left out. If you are still having trouble after trying to write the code block then edit your question to show us what you have tried in the field calculator.

comment Merging USGS DEMs in ArcMap?
Would you be able to edit your question to include a link to the "similar question posted here in 2013", please? That way potential answerers can better understand what you have already tried. Does "doesn't seem to recognize" mean that an error is thrown? If so, including the text from that is likely to be valuable information for us to have.

comment How to find diverge locations in ArcGIS
When you edit your question can you also let us know what version and license level of ArcGIS for Desktop you are using, please? In this instance it may make a difference.

Would you be able to use the edit button rather than a comment trail to provide these clarifications to your question, please?
