I am a researcher in population health at the University of East Anglia. I use GIS (ArcGIS) to process data with the aim of defining and categorising people's environments. I am learning how to use python for the automation of geoprocessing.

So, the script is working. in addition to installing SP1, I also installed the new 64-bit geoprocessing thing - this throws up the error, but if I run it in the old 32-bit way it runs fine. So, can I use my .mdb files with 64-bit processing? if so, how?

I tried the script again after turning my computer on this morning (before opening anything else), and the same error was returned. If I use arcpy.Exists it returns true for the database, but false for the table. Presumably a lock file would be on the .mdb rather than the table within it? there doesn't seem to be one.

This answer and comment have made me think about the type of information I should be collecting from our users. I don't currently have details of specific issues users have had, so my main concern was that installation of the SP might have unintended consequences (is that likely?). I ran through a few basic geoprocessing commands, ran a couple of python scripts using shps and gdbs, and used Spatial Ecology's GME, as these are the sorts of things people seem to do here.
