I am trying to join a field of values found within a DBF to a multi-polyline shapefile. They share a common field name (filename) and the values found within each are identical. I was able to run Join Field without a hitch in ArcMap, but I'm receiving two errors when I try to run it in Python with identical parameters. Here's the block of code:
merge_features = r"C:/Users/kellyj/Desktop/Projects/CostAnalysis/merge_features" import arcpy from arcpy import env arcpy.env.workspace = merge_features arcpy.AddJoin_management("merged_lines.shp", "filename", "merged_table.dbf", "filename")
These are the errors I receive:
ExecuteError: Failed to execute. Parameters are not valid.
The value cannot be a feature class
ERROR 000840: The value is not a Raster Layer.
ERROR 000840: The value is not a Raster Catalog Layer.
ERROR 000840: The value is not a Mosaic Layer.
WARNING 000970: The join field filename in the join table merged_lines is not indexed. To improve performance, we recommend that an index be created for the join field in the join table.
Any thoughts as to what's happening here?
