I am trying to use a python script to automate the export of the data driven map document.

However when I use the python script to run the DDP export some of the labels are not exported and the symbols that have a rotation angle based on a attribute in the layer table is not rotating.

Other than the labels and the symbols the python script to automate the exports works fine.

When I run the DDP manually (through the MXD) all the labels and symbols are exported correctly. Have anyone else encountered this problem?

    Would you be able to edit your question to include a code snippet that demonstrates what you are describing, please? A picture of the same extent both in ArcMap and when exported (to PDF?) would also be useful. – PolyGeo Dec 2 '14 at 22:28
  • I experienced very similar thing by just printing to pdf - labels were missing on most of the pages, but 1st. Ended up exporting map. – FelixIP Dec 3 '14 at 1:53
