comment need help to automatize report generation
It sounds like two new Questions need to be spawned from this very broad one: 1) "how to add the geometry + points to mapframe"; and 2) "how to add the table of coordinates" to mapframe. If these were looking for a Python/ArcPy solution and included some "code so far" then they are something that I would be able to try and answer. I would use "pseudo DDP" rather than Data Driven Pages.

comment How to Create Feature Layers and Search by Location for all Feature Classes in Geodatabase?
Welcome to GIS SE! Being "very new to Python", I recommend that you do the Make Feature Layer and Select Layer By Location steps manually on one feature class first, then use Copy As Python Snippet in the Geoprocessing | Results window to copy/paste the first few lines of code that you can post here via an edit to your Question. From there it should be easy to advise on how to add the iteration advice you seek.

comment need help to automatize report generation
Would you be able to edit your Question to explain what programming environment you are trying to do this in, please? You mention AxPageLayoutControl so can we assume that you are after an ArcObjects only solution? At the moment I think your Question may be too broad, and in need of focus by letting us know which aspects you already know how to do, and the most important one that is blocking you so that you can seek an Answer to that specific question. I would do this using Python/ArcPy.

comment How to merge dbf files in Python or arcpy?
This looks like you just need to use Join Field in a manual test. Would you be able to edit your Question to mention if that solves the test case you describe and, if so, details about where a Python script needs to look to find these and your other hundred files.

comment How to preserve line segment ObjectIDs in point output from line Intersect?
Take a look at Overlay Route Events (Linear Referencing) which, after using Make Route Event Layer, should enable you to do a line-on-line overlay with a point output that keeps attributes.

comment How to do geometric correction of remote sensing data in R?
@AndreJoost I'm only suggesting that the name and email address (not the Answer) be moved as per the help guidelines because I agree that the reference and offer of assistance looks very useful to the asker (and later readers).

comment Is there any statistical method to proof if the method is suitable or not
I think you need to provide much more detail about what you have done and where you are stuck. For example, I suspect "phonological" is a term that you will need to provide a definition for or link to.

Welcome to GIS SE! Our protocols can take some getting used to but one of them is that we do not include signatures (contact details) in any Questions or Answers because every post we make is already signed by our user cards. Your user card is located here so I recommend you just move your name and email address from this Answer into that.

comment Help finding Postcode Boundaries for The UK, Spain, Canada, Ireland, Brazil?
Welcome to GIS SE! I think your question is currently too broad and recommend that you edit it to focus on one country (whichever one is the most important to you). That way you can show what research you have done already and save others going over the same ground. You can then research/ask the others separately.

comment Basic If/Then in ArcGIS 10.2 Field Calculator (Python or VB)
Have you considered using Summary Statistics with YEAR as your case field? That should give you the COUNT for each year without needing to use Python or the Field Calculator.

comment Basic If/Then in ArcGIS 10.2 Field Calculator (Python or VB)
I recommend that you do this using Python and edit your Question to replace the vba and vbscript tags with a python tag. Although not gone yet VBScript is in the process of being deprecated. I expect it will easy to do with the Python parser once you provide a more detailed description which includes a picture/table of some sample rows showing actual input and expected output. Is YEAR a date field or an integer field containing values corresponding to years?

comment COGOing Legal Descriptions
Also, I recommend that you list the steps that you have taken so that a potential Answerer just has to let you know the ones he/she thinks that you have missed.

comment how to convert latitude, longitude projection from epsg:3857 to epsg:4326
Your Answer was flagged up as low-quality because of its length. I recommend that you add a paragraph to give more context about how it addresses the Question.

comment Autocorrelation: Best way to assess mixed uses and building scales?
What GIS software and version are you using to try and do this? Your spatial-analyst tag suggests ArcGIS for Desktop but it is best to be explicit.

@JayReynolds If you get a chance it would be good if you can reward kas673 by clicking the big green tick next to his/her Answer to Accept it.

comment How to set all pixels with value <= 0 to “nodata” in DEM raster?
From the comments and closure suggestions it seems like you should edit your Question to clarify precisely what you want and what you have already tried.
