I have a question regarding the merge of a lot of folders, which has a lot subfolders, which has the shapefiles stored. I would like to merge all those in one geodatabase. So I thought to use a Python script.
import os, arcpy.da print os.getcwd() for dirname, dirnames, filenames in os.walk('.'): for subdirname in dirnames: current_dir = os.path.join(dirname, subdirname) arcpy.env.workspace = current_dir fcList = arcpy.ListFeatureClasses(".shp") Merge = r"D:\Test\Merge_multiple.gdb\Totals" for fc in fcList: print fc arcpy.Merge_management([fc,destination],Merge) arcpy.Delete_management(desination) arcpy.Rename_management(Merge, destination) break
So, I started the script and after a minute it stops and unfortunately, no result. Because there are several different names in the shapefiles, I thought to use only the suffix .shp.
Could you help me?
[Edit] I get the path of the working directory in the python window. After this message, the window closes without any errors.
[Edit2] Based on PolyGeo's advice, I've run the script also in the IDLE environment and this is the result:
