comment When should you NOT use a spatial index?
Thanks for starting this thread. I've been pouring over information on the net, trying to figure out why my organization (government) does not make use of spatial (or even attribute) indices on their oracle/sde feature classes and tables. Now I have a few arguments to present to them so taht I don't have to pull my hair out, waiting for a query to resolve itself.

comment Determining Shape Area Field Name
Thanks Barbarossa. I must have missed that property in Describe because I was looking for ways to describe the fields and that one didn't come up in my search. That works perfectly.

comment Using Python to connect to Multiple SDE Database Connections
There's a few issues around the user saving this information. The organization I work for doesn't like it when they do and we're working off a terminal server for our Desktop application. I find that when I try to save this information, there are times when I log our of the terminal and log back in, it chooses one of 6 servers to work from which seems to erase the login information. Somehow I have to resolve the log in from the GUI or script.

comment Using Python to connect to Multiple SDE Database Connections
Are you assuming that I am using the arcpy.CreateArcSDEConnectionFile_management function? As I mentioned above, i am trying to avoid using that. I have existing DB connections I want to access. I do not want to create new ones if I can avoid it. I haven't found anything in the arcgpy package aside from that function that allows you to connect to existing db connections....

Hey, thanks for the reply. The problem is that this method still requires the Database Connections prompt to login your username and password. When the prompt pops up, I try to click in the window to type something, but the ArcGIS GUI automatically pops back on top and becomes the selectable window which prevents me from typing anything into the Connections prompt.
