comment How can I use a variable to specify which field to update with arcpy.UpdateCursor?
I would try debugging by printing your variable out. Since the variable only stores the string row.FieldName I can't imagine why it wouldn't work -- maybe there's a simple error that you didn't catch? In any case go with what works!

comment Why do i get an input error no module named arcpy when i try and import it into pythonwin?
Sounds like the arcpy module isn't saved to your PYTHONPATH or sys.path. Does it work within ArcMap's Python Window?

comment Using newly created features in the next part of a python script
Just a suggestion, it's generally good practice to avoid spaces and special characters with naming conventions (your gdb name).

comment How to iterate throught fields names in a table and change row values?
Why not just do this in field calculator? You could use the same snippet in each field and skip modelbuilder all together.

comment How do I format SQL queries for use in Arcpy?
I find it helpful to build the query step by step; this is especially useful when you're dealing with values stored as variables. It looks confusing at first, but you can always use a print statement to see how it turns out: whereClause = '"' + fieldName + '" = ' + "'" + fieldValue + "'"

comment Need a spatial database that can be used by QGIS and R
Spatialite = No server configuration! You can copy your database and send it to someone without having to connect anyone to a server.

comment How to connect a dbo database through the add database server in ArcCatalog?
All things considered, I think it's more likely that the configuration is wrong. I'm not sure the full extent of the differences between the full version and express, but I was under the impression it had to do with data storage capacity (Express is limited to 10GB).

comment How to connect a dbo database through the add database server in ArcCatalog?
I set up this connection last week with the Express version. It should be serverName\sqlserver2008. I think I just copied and pasted from SQL Server Management Tools.

comment Need a spatial database that can be used by QGIS and R
I can understand the need for a DB Front end that allows you to control user input, GUI. You'll definitely want to store the actual data in a spatially enabled DB, and potentially connect to it with Access if needed.

comment Way to script customization for ArcPad AXF file?
Agreed sgrieve, any attempts at technical support from ESRI on ArcPad and they just push ArcGIS Mobile on you. It's crazy that they continue to sell a product that they have no intention of supporting.

comment Python scripting for ArcPad Checkin
This article says to do essentially what you've done: support.esri.com/es/knowledgebase/techarticles/detail/35586 I guess there just isn't any ArcPad module access through Python?

comment How do you get the coordinates from a click or drag event in the Google Maps API V3?
Mapperz example looks pretty good. I haven't used the GM API in a while, you might get a quicker answer on StackOverflow.

Sort of fuzzy on what you're trying to do, but within an event handler function you can use evt.latLng to grab coordinates

comment ArcGIS 10 Field Calculator doesn't notice selection/Attribute Table problem?
I found the opposite to be the case. I'd inadvertantly left one record selected and couldn't figure out why my field calc operation wasn't running on all fields. gis.stackexchange.com/questions/29235/…

comment How do I access a multivalue output parameter from a python script in modelbuilder in ArcGIS 10.0?
Looking at the script, it appears the outputParam var is being used to create a script Parameter than can insert the layer into the map (without the whole script I can't tell for sure). In all honesty, I find Modelbuilder to be convoluted and more difficult to work with than straight Python. I'd be happy to work with you on a Python solution, but I've only ever used Modelbulider for diagraming my analysis.

comment Export each layer in map to a separate image
Since the loop is only looping through layers in the map / in the list it's definitely not an infinite loop. Using this code I was able to turn off all layers in my mxd.

comment Export each layer in map to a separate image
See updated script. My mistake I created a script that worked for me, but not all use cases last time. As I say in the script comment, the arcpy.RefreshActiveView may be unneccessary (try without it to see if the map exports correctly). If it's not needed things will run faster.
