comment Configuring attachments for ArcGIS Local Government “Citizen Service Request” App
thanks for the help. to the best of my knowledge, the attachments are enabled (tables are included as relates back to the ServiceRequest FC). Still not working and I also get the cannot attach because the file is greater than 5mb message.

comment What are the low cost options for converting FLEX API based web mapping applications to any other platform?
I can tell you that I moved our organization to Geocortex Essentials with amazing results. The set up is simple and the back end interface where you set up your maps is much improved as of the 4.3 release. Cost was around 20k but its a COTS product so you don't have to spend time keeping up with versions of ArcGIS JavaScript API and maintaining code in house.

comment Finding diameter of pipes on either side of valves using ArcGIS Desktop?
The Generate Near Table gives you the option of selecting the max number of features based on a distance from the input dataset (valves). If you set this to 2 and leave the search distance blank, it should bring back the 2 closest pipes to each valve..

comment Can you access all tools in python/arcpy regardless of license level?
well I can write it, but I want to know if it will work. I have an advanced license with several extensions, but many of my coworkers only have basic or standard and need access occasionally to tools outside of their license level, so I'm trying to find a solution, since upgrading them isn't an option.

comment Concatenate features in one feature class by the unique ID
well reading back through that string in the forum it looks like I had a similar error, although its been a while since I've worked with this script. From my comments in the forum thread it looks like the code at the bottom worked for me.

I'm assuming you changed the keyField and valField values to match your dataset fields you are working with?

I had a similar issue a year or so ago. Essentially, you can use arcpy and SearchCursor and InsertCursor to do what you are looking for: geonet.esri.com/message/…

comment How to split single address field into 4 fields (House No., Direction, Name, Suffix)
I've tried both HOUSENO and STREETNAME codes. The issue I'm having is, for HOUSENO, its grabbing all numerical data even if the street name is 1234th Street, so I wind up with some records being 1231234 from 123 1234th Street. Similarly, from the STREETNAME code, it is stripping all numerical data, so 1234th Street is returning "th Street"

comment How to split single address field into 4 fields (House No., Direction, Name, Suffix)
tried the HOUSENO code, it worked, but it also brought all numerical street name data along with house number data. perhaps for this portion splitting at first space is the way to go.

No. Some have PREDIR and some don't. Would this be a good place to create some sort of if/then statement into a script? If SE, SW, NE, NE, etc then populate PREDIR else do nothing?

that's not what has been suggested in the past.

comment How to Properly Loop Through a List With a Cursor?
this worked except it deleted the entire record instead of just deleting the value of the field. I'm assuming now I need to change fCursor.deleteRow() to a variation of fCursor.updateRow?Thanks!

comment How to export from ModelBuilder as script and then run using Python. 3.4?
10.1 ships with Python 2.7. Not sure if that might introduce some inconsistencies.

comment Is there a tool to track edits that were made?
yes, I'm using that, however, I'm wondering if there is something I could create that would loop through all of my feature classes and give a list of modified records, sorted by feature class.
