comment Why am I getting an ERROR 000728: Field *fieldname* does not exist within table even though field exists?
This thread mentions the same refresh issue and suggests a manual way to force a refresh but its for .NET, I wonder if there is an equivalent in arcpy.

comment arcpy.sa.CostDistance from Python gives error about number of args but executes fine through Toolbox
Absolutely correct, I need to read more carefully!

comment Is there a way to disable code autocomplete in the Python window in ArcGIS 10.0
In ArcMap 10.0 there is no Tools menu. What program do you access this setting?

Thank you, exactly what I need to read!

So perhaps I shouldn't worry about inconsistency in its return value if I'm not even supposed to be using it?

What's frustrating is often I want to know why this ends up working the way it does but because of ESRI/ARC quirkiness or lack of documentation, I'll probably be spinning my wheels unless someone can shed some light.

arcpy.env.workspace is set, in the above example to D:/temp/. Should I not be referring to a feature class by a variable and instead always by a path?

comment It it possible to uninstall IDLE from a ArcGIS 10.0 install?
Nirsoft's ShellExView was not able to find the context menu shell extension for the python files in this case. Tried both the 32 and 64 bit versions, where each found extensions that the other didn't.

I removed the first four entries you mention, the fifth did not exist. Searching the registry for "IDLE" yielded no other results. Shell extension is now gone.

comment How to use ArcGIS functionality in Python without running ArcMap (e.g. separate editor/environment)
None. I accepted the Eclipse suggestion since that's the way I went and preferred. I only answered my own question to document the setup process. Any reason my answer should be edited into the question? Perhaps this should be a CW?

comment How to use ArcGIS functionality in Python without running ArcMap (e.g. separate editor/environment)
Is there much involved with getting Eclipse + PyDev to work w/ ArcGIS functionality? Other answers seem to indicate some peculiarities with using the non-Arc installed Python?

comment How to use ArcGIS functionality in Python without running ArcMap (e.g. separate editor/environment)
I confess this seems almost more of a Python question and also betrays my ignorance of the Python environment, but hopefully the answer is of use to others who are new to ArcGis + Python!

comment ArcCatalog 10.0 complains that spatial references don't match between a feature dataset and a feature class that have the same coordinate system?
I'm seeing this problem - even if I create the Feature Dataset and use the import mechanism and selected the feature class, I still can't drag/copy the feature class into the newly created Feature Dataset without the aforementioned error.

comment How do I only view selected rasters from a geodatabase raster catalog in ArcGIS 10.0
what do you mean by "attribute the table in ArcCatalog"?

comment How do I move and/or rename a file geodatabase?
+1 for recommending AcrCatalog for data management aspect. Was trying to do it via the Catalog window in ArcMap but no multipane dragging or cut option.

comment How does ArcGIS calculate the “inside” point for “Feature to Point”
While this doesn't tell us how the inside point is calculated it does tell us its synonymous with the label point.

comment How can I have ArcGIS not automatically add raster clip output from Python window to the current map
This post on ESRI's forums gives a good workaround: always have the dialog disable and use the AddLayer function in the arcpy.mapping module to add outputs as needed.

comment How can I have ArcGIS not automatically add raster clip output from Python window to the current map
This post on ESRI's forums asks the equivalent question of a way to do this programmatically using Python. The OP seems to indicate this was available in 9.3 via arcgisscripting and now he wants to do it in 10.0 via arcpy.

Thanks! Is there a way to set this programmatically?

This forum post on ESRI's site is interesting and does seem to indicate its a black box.
