comment ArcGIS for Desktop 10.3 vs ArcGIS Pro
A word of caution is that there is a marked change in licensing conditions for ArcGIS Pro from those to which ArcGIS for Desktop users are accustomed. It is worth reviewing ArcGIS Pro License : Subscription license - will expire when maintenance stops and voting at Are you in favour of ArcGIS Pro as Temporary use, subscription license that expires when maintenance stops?, if you have not already.

comment Selection layers ie selection by location or attibute. Are selections retained when the data source is updated
I think you should edit your question to halt your description at the first point where what you observe deviates from what the documentation would have you expect happen. That way we can focus on just explaining one issue at a time. Can you also record the GIS software (presumably ArcGIS for Desktop) that you are using, please?

comment Removing Slivers/Holes From Polygons using ArcGIS for Desktop?
I think this may be a duplicate of gis.stackexchange.com/questions/11004/… - if you think not, then can you edit your question to clarify why you think your question is different and no answer there applies.

comment arcpy search cursor not working
Perhaps research here and elsewhere on "arcpy cursor where clause field value empty". I think the problem is with query and the syntax you are using there.

comment Is it possible to consume ArcGIS Hosted Table into local or ArcSDE geodatabase?
What do you mean by a "local db"? Do you mean a file geodatabase?

comment Python code for calculation between fields in shapefile?
If the person completely changes the question and strands an answer then the question should be rolled back to its previous state, and the asker advised to ask a new question as follow up instead. A flag to moderators can be used to achieve this if you do not yet have sufficient privilege. The key thing to remember is that we do focused Q&A here rather than rolling conversations that are difficult to decipher later.

comment Python code for calculation between fields in shapefile?
I would advise against using comments in the way you suggest here because our focussed Q&A format works very differently to a discussion forum - see meta.gis.stackexchange.com/a/3353 for my perspective on the role played by comments.

comment Does this ArcGIS flow accumulation example have an error?
ESRI changed it's name/branding to Esri several years - but questions here are almost always about GIS software (or algorithms) rather than GIS companies so I would have left that out too.

comment Does this ArcGIS flow accumulation example have an error?
I've edited accordingly but I think having the arcgis-desktop tag would have been more likely to bring your question to the attention of whoever authored and/or is responsible for that page of documentation.

comment Python code for calculation between fields in shapefile?
I'm confused by your question. You say you do not "want to use any arctool for calculation" and yet you have an arcgis-10.0 tag suggesting that you may be wanting to use ArcGIS Desktop 10.0 (and ArcPy). Would you be able to edit your question to make clear what you wish to do, what you have already tried (i.e. your Python code so far), and where you are stuck.

comment Are there any training resources in SQL and Python as applied to GIS database management?
If you do not think that this is a duplicate then I recommend editing the question to focus it on the SQL and/or database management aspects rather than Python for ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Server because I think the duplicate covers off well on the latter.
