Using ArcGIS 10.2 Desktop I am trying to run a Merge function by Arcpy as
# Set environment settings env.workspace = "E:\\GIS\\ROR" path = "E:\\GIS\\Data\\" featureClass = "band-tailed_pigeon.shp" InputFeature = path + featureClass FinaloutLocation = "E:\\GIS\\Data\\Final" dissolve_1 = "dissolved_1.shp" dissolve_2 = "dissolved_2.shp" dissolve_3 = "dissolved_3.shp" dissolve_4 = "dissolved_4.shp" dissolve_5 = "dissolved_5.shp" # Process: Merge inFeaturesToMerge = [dissolve_1,dissolve_2,dissolve_3,dissolve_4,dissolve_5] arcpy.Merge_management(inFeaturesToMerge, FinaloutLocation)
but I am getting this error:
ExecuteError: Failed to execute. Parameters are not valid. ERROR 000725: Output Dataset: Dataset E:\GIS\Data\Final already exists.
Can you please let me know why this is happening?
