I have an inline variable substiution which I would like to import into my Python script. Is that possible? I am trying to make a parameter within my path.
My path currently is "c:\Users\Jelle\Dropbox". Within Model Builder I can substitute 'Jelle' by using an inline variable subsitution (name) and call it through %name%. I would like to replace "Jelle" with other names but then within a Python script.
I have tried using GetParameterAsText and making the inline variable as a Parameter within Model Builder but I get an empty output: Here is the script which I tried for it:
import arcpy username = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0) #this is the inline variable 'name' which I am trying to call input_table = "C:\\Users\\"+str(username)+"\\Dropbox"
Input_table gives the following return:
Hence the 'username' variable is not returned
I have the feeling I should be using something else other than GetParameterAsText. Could someone help me out here?
