I have a Bachelor of Science in Applied Geoinformatics, with my main areas of study being Geography and Environmental Studies, GIS, Computer Science and Information Systems. I have always had a passion for computers and geography, so studying and working in the GIS field has given me the best of both worlds.

My questions/answers will be written in South African (UK) English - please do not "correct" my spelling.

comment How To Export Selected Data Driven Pages to PDF?
@RyanDalton +1 for the ESRI blog link, I used that post as my starting point for doing DDP in Python and it really helped me with many scripts doing various things.

comment Iterate Workspaces in Modelbuilder not executing all tools
I figured this is a bug in ModelBuilder, so I've long sinced moved to Python to do this sort of thing for me.

Excellent, have been meaning to look into this as well.

comment Python If else statements
This sounds more like you want to set up subtypes and attribute domains. If you set up a subtype on field A, then using an attribute domain the dropdown list in Field B would change accordingly. This would ensure that if NI is chosen, Non Irrigated is automatically populated, else the dropdown list will appear.

comment Changing page orientation using data driven pages
I've learnt a lot since I've asked this question, so I did come to the conclusion that I would need two different templates. I ended up creating a python script to pull everything together for exporting.

@PolyGeo no it's not possible to set the page orientation as an attribute of the DDP.

comment ArcGIS modelbuilder: Iterate through Excel sheets?
Python might be better for this case, as it will handle it better.

comment How to assign values to field using if/then logic involving multiple fields?
The field names should be surrounded by ! not [. I think the OP has not changed the parser to Python in the Field Calculator.

comment issues with updating data source, script runs but nothing happens, arcpy
You don't need to save the mxd after each data source is replaced, rather save once the for loop has finished with the layers (shift mxd.save() four spaces back).

comment How to zoom to layer with page definition query set in arcpy?
@mittence That's not what I asked, I am referring specifically to zooming to the extent defined by a page definition query set by having data driven pages enabled. No features are actually selected, so using the normal getSelectedFeatures() method zooms to the extent of the entire layer.

comment Error with save path. Does not exist or is not supported
In your raster_dp.save() line, replace what you have in the brackets with os.path.join(path + parentdir,dir,str(dpRaster) + ".TIF"). It seems like you might be getting numeric values for dpRaster, in which case you cannot use string concatenation as you currently have it, the number needs to be cast to a string.

comment Nullable fields in feature service will not save with null values
I just checked the version of ArcGIS Mobile I am using, it is build 2437 and according to this ArcGIS Idea, this was implemented in build 2500. Will be installing ArcGIS Mobile 10.1 shortly. This really doesn't explain though why I could save null values in the mobile project before, using this same version.

comment Nullable fields in feature service will not save with null values
I actually used the 10.2 version of ArcGIS Diagrammer to create the schema and gdb, but am working with in ArcGIS 10. As I said, there are no problems saving the null values in ArcMap 10, the problem only seems to be from the mobile side.
