I need to extract the acres from the legal description. I have tried "(!Legal!.split(" AC")[-1])" but it gave an error. I am using ArcGIS 10.2 using python in the field calculator. I realized why my scrip wouldn't work but can't quite figure it out. Any thoughts?
Try the following:
!Legal!.split(" AC").split(" ")[-1]
The first split will separate the rest of the text from " AC" and the second will give you last text element separated by a space.
