Aplogoises if this has already been solved but I'm having problems using the Erase function in ArcGIS. I have had problems using the normal function, as it throws a Error9999 Topology error amongst others. So decided to Python! However having problems with invalid syntax, am I missing something obvious?
import arcpy from arcpy import env env.workspace = "K:\Head Offices\Conservation\Conservation Information Team\Systems Support\GIS\ArcGIS\Ancient Trees\Ancient trees\Comparisions\\" arcpy.Erase_analysis('AncientTreesFullAugust2014 - Copy_font_point.shp','AncientTreesJuly2014TinyPolygon.shp','Aug2014AncientTreesDifferentToJuly2014.shp')
