comment Restricting dataset types does not work correctly in a dataset iterator
I've resorted to using os.walk and restricting it to CAD extensions. I'll keep looking around to find out why it is not recognising the CAD files. Thanks

comment Restricting dataset types does not work correctly in a dataset iterator
Quite odd - the same thing happens. The array is empty as if there were no CAD files. If I use arcpy.da.walk without specifying the data type, it now "sees" the CAD files.

comment Performance of dataset iterator over a network
@Fezter The network drives still appear when Catalog crashes, we have just come to accept that the network is slow and that's it. Before, we couldn't even load basemaps in ArcMap because everything was locked down and IT would open each connection individually. Fortunately they got tired of us harassing them, so they've allowed all ESRI/Arcgis connections. The folders are not deeply nested (T:\xxxxxx xx\xxxxx), so the paths are under that limit.

comment Performance of dataset iterator over a network
@blah238 yes, I almost never have problems if the data is on my C drive. That defeats the purpose of having the data on a network drive though. As it is, it took me an hour and a half to copy the 21GB folder from Drive #2 to Drive #1. We are trying to keep all data off our computers and trying to work solely on Drive #1, but if the network connection drops (which it does, often, and always when we have deadlines) it is impossible to get any work done at all.

comment How to select a number of rows based on current sort order
I asked this question because I wanted to know if there was a way to do it using SQL. Judging by the answers and links, it seems like it cannot done using a subquery on a file gdb.

I was doing it as you mentioned in your first method, but that started getting annoying. I did end up using your second method yesterday as I needed to get the work done.

@blah238 It is a gdb table in a file gdb.

comment Table Borders won't print when added to display
No, I was referring to the default table edges which are added once you add it to the layout. It did not occur to me to right click the table since it is now a graphic (argh...). Thanks for the excellent link as well, I've tested a few prints from different mxds and the tables are printing consistently each time.

comment Does multimodal network need a physical intersection between a point (terminal) and a line (rail or road)?
I have not (as yet) had to create transfer edges myself, but if you take a look at this post over at the Network Analyst forum, it looks like it will do what you need.
