I would like to query a feature classes date range. For instance, if there is data within a 2 day range then I would like to print true or do something else. I thought arcpy.Exist would do the job, but I am missing something here. I guess my arcpy.Exist is only seeing if the variable exists, how would I check to see if the actual where clause is True for my feature layer?
query = arcpy.MakeFeatureLayer_management(fc, "QueryLayer", """Date BETWEEN '2014-02-16 16:53:25' AND '2014-02-17 18:53:25'""") try: query finally: if arcpy.Exists(query): print "true" else: print "no data"
