comment Converting ASCII file to shapefile in ArcGIS Desktop?
If there is no error, then can you tell us what your symptoms of "not working" are, please? Also, a link to the "asciitoshape" tool that you downloaded would be helpful.

comment Taking photos representing concepts of scale, territory, flow and network in relation to globalization?
I recommend searching for the inspiration that you seek for what sounds like a Geography assignment by typing each of the four terms into Google and seeing what jumps out. Unfortunately, your question is too broad for our focussed Q&A format even if it were GIS rather than general Geography. To learn more about the Q&A we do here I recommend taking the Tour and following links from there.

comment Object: Createobject Layer Invalid Data Source
To help you with code such as this I think we will need you to supply a code snippet that works up to the point where you are stuck. With a code snippet and the first error that it produces it is usually quite easy to debug Python/ArcPy but for support on the tool as a whole the quickest way to resolving your problem may be to contact its author.

comment Using pymssql to create a table using python ArcMap 10.3
It sounds like you cannot create your SQL Server table from the Python window of ArcMap but you have not told us whether the same code (minus import arcpy) works from IDLE (or another IDE). If it does, then can you tell us the error thrown by the Python window of ArcMap when you run that code there, please?

comment Using pymssql to create a table using python ArcMap 10.3
There does not seem to be a GIS component to your question. You import arcpy but do not use it. I think you should research/ask questions about pymssql at Database Administrators.

comment Error Executing Tool - Export Web Map
As it stands your question is providing no useful information to distinguish it from what is in the duplicate Q&A. If the answer there does not help you then I recommend that you edit your question to describe in detail what you have tried and where you are stuck.

comment How to reduce Overpass way QL statement output to just tags?
Please do not use the area reserved for direct answers to your question to make comments or ask new questions. At your <50 reputation your best bet may be to use the edit button to revise your question, but if that will invalidate any existing answers then you need to ask a new question. Please take the Tour if you have not already.

comment Explaining ArcGIS Raster to Polygon output?
Don't forget that there is an edit button that you can use to revise your question with extra details that are requested via comments. Our Tour is well worth taking.

comment Exporting list of tables contained in *.mdb with ArcPy gives Indentation Error?
I recommend running code like this from IDLE (or another IDE if you have fluency in it).

comment Concatenating fields while also replacing values within certain stings
This one looks suitable for the Python Parser of Field Calculator rather than a separate Python script. I think you should focus on getting the concatenation working in the ArcGIS Field Calculator first (here at Geographic Information Systems), and then solving the replacement secondarily (probably searching Stack Overflow since that is pure Python).

comment WMS layer connected to SQL database
Would you be able to edit your question to indicate whether you are using OpenLayers 2 or OpenLayers 3, please?

comment Alter Fields in multiple feature classes in multiple workspaces
Rather than os.walk I recommend arcpy.da.Walk because it is able to walk inside geodatabases.

comment Alter Fields in multiple feature classes in multiple workspaces
Would you be able to specify the version of ArcGIS for Desktop that you are using, please? For the question you are now asking it is likely to make a big difference.

What precisely have you tried and where are you stuck? Please edit your question to provide more details.

comment Error importing ArcPy after Python upgrade?
I'm a little confused about where your script starts/stops and your errors begin. Would you be able to edit your question to clearly distinguish script from errors, please?

comment Showing multiple attributes in legend of ArcMap?
As mentioned in the Tour remember that our focussed Q&A format works best with one question per question.

comment Copy fields to existing dataset using other dataset as layout
Which step is slow? And how many features are leading to how much time taken?

comment Alter Fields in multiple feature classes in multiple workspaces
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour where you will see that only one question should be asked per question. I recommend that you use the edit button beneath your question to edit the second one out. Also, you have posted some code and then mentioned that you edited it but what we really need to see is precisely what you ran when you were stuck and any errors thrown. While you are testing and want to see all errors I suggest removing your try/except.

comment Create a specific number points that are equidistant from each other and a constraining polygon
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 version that you are using, please?

comment Copying attributes of one row to another row in polygon shapefile in ArcGIS?
Paste Attributes definitely works on multiple highlighted features in the Attributes window at once.
