comment Arcpy Table To Table Conversion Error
I cannot see anywhere in your question (or added on comments that would be best consolidated into it) that you have tried using the Excel To Table (Conversion) tool and taken care to select a worksheet from your spreadsheet (*.xls) rather than the spreadsheet itself. I think not doing the latter would result in an Error 000732.

comment Is it possible to create a data frame graphic using arcpy?
... so that a copy method could clone it, elementPositionX/elementPositionY it to the centre of the page, and make it a default elementHeight & elementWidth:-)

comment Find overlapping polylines in same layer in ArcMap?
@Reza If you run Intersect on the single feature class that is the source for both those layers then add its output to your map I think will be just that short segment of overlap.

comment Shapefile to MSSQL with ogr2ogr fails to make connection
@abhinavgoyal02 Your answer, which was not in direct response to the question, has been converted to a comment. Be sure to ask it as a new question if it concerns an issue that is still affecting you.

comment What does property FeatureTypeName do in Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD) specification?
In line with the comment by @iant I have edited the title of your question to refer to just the first question that you asked. I recommend that you edit your question to focus on just that and then research/ask the other questions separately.

comment How to calculate distance from point to polygon with a time frame?
It sounds like you may be using ArcGIS for Desktop but if you edit your question to state that and the version you are using then potential answerers will not need to make assumptions before deciding to help.

comment Find overlapping polylines in same layer in ArcMap?
I think you should edit your original question to include graphics that illustrate your precise requirements.

Would you be able to edit your question to include the country that you want to do this for, please?

comment Updating Data Driven Pages in PDF format to use with ArcGIS Viewer for Flex?
Would you be able to provide more details in your question, please? I think you must have a DDP-enabled map book that you are exporting to multiple PDFs, and that these PDFs are accessed from known locations via your custom web application. When you say "Grid feature class" I think you may be meaning a polygon feature class from perhaps Create Fishnet that you are using as the Index feature class for DDP.

comment Multivalue processing in the context of the modelbuilder
@user32882 If you wish to pursue the "Parameters are not valid" error it could be worth researching/asking it separately so that this Q&A remains focussed on your original problem.

comment Generic Question about Union tool in Arcmap
Do you have an option to test your model on another machine with more RAM? I've seen iterating models that fail on large datasets with similar symptoms using 4Gb RAM run without a problem using 12 Gb RAM.

comment How to use polyline Z in shapefiles?
Welcome to GIS SE! I recommend that you extend your internet search to Wikipedia which has a useful Shapefile page that mentions the Z (three-dimensional) type.

comment SuperMap GIS in depth assessment
Of the nearly 38,000 questions asked here this is the first one that mentions SuperMap so there may be no one here who has used it thoroughly. To discover whether software is likely to meet your requirements there is no substitute for undertaking a trial of it. Asking here about specific feature comparisons as you start to use them would fit our focussed Q&A format much better.

comment JTS Polygon Coordinates Order *DOES MATTER* For Some Reason
Now, before any answers are offered to your question in its original form, would be an ideal time to edit your question to improve it with your responses to clarifications being sought via comments.

comment What is the radius of earth
@recurvata I'm not certain that I understand your comment but I think making this one a duplicate should cause the original to show up as related next time someone starts to write one similar to this.

comment SuperMap GIS in depth assessment
Would you be able to edit your question to just ask about one specific requirement that you have and may be concerned about, please? Otherwise, I think your question is too broad and/or too likely to generate opinion-based answers. From the help: "If you can imagine an entire book that answers your question, you’re asking too much."

comment Symbolizing multiple polygons as one by dropping internal boundaries?
If you only put the software and version in once then I think the question body is the most important place to do that - see my logic for saying that at meta.gis.stackexchange.com/questions/3349/… but for this one tags of arcgis-desktop and arcgis-10.2 are very useful too so I would recommend they be present CC @John

comment Statistics field in the dissolve tool not always accurate
Would you be able to edit your question to include the precise steps you used to derive each, please? This should include screenshots of the relevant parts of the input and output feature class attribute tables, as well as the Dissolve tool dialog showing the parameters used there. Initially I thought the discrepancy may have been due to contiguous polygons but I've now read that these are point features.
