I have been experimenting with ESRI's CalculateArea custom tool and it works fine running within ArcGIS from a toolbox. Then I wanted to see if I could run it as a standalone script from the commandline like this:
import arcpy arcpy.AddToolbox(r"D:\Toolbox.tbx") arcpy.CalculateArea(r"D:\data.gdb\data", "Area")
The following error occurs:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "D:\calcAreaTest.py", line 3, in <module> arcpy.CalculateArea(r"D:\data.gdb\data", "Area") File "D:\Toolbox.tbx", line 25, in CalculateArea arcgisscripting.ExecuteError: ERROR 000582: Error occurred during execution.
I can paste the same code from calcAreaTest.py into the ArcGIS Python code window and it works. Anybody know how I can get it to work from the commandline?
Here is the link to the source code of the GPCalculateArea tool if anybody is interested at looking it. GPCalculateArea custom tool
