I'm trying to use arcpy SearchCursor to iterate through an attribute table, and the only fields that I'm interested are line_code, w_min and ang_ataque. This is not running properly because I got the type error :

"'Row' object is not iterable"

What's wrong in my code?

import arcpy


import collections
for Line_code,w_min,ang_ataque in data:
  • 1
    where do you get the error? maybe the shapefile is empty. make sure all the fields exists in the shapefile – Farid Cheraghi Sep 16 '15 at 12:53
  • My shapefile has an attribute table with various fields. I get the error after cycle for. I'm gonna update the code here to show – AndM Sep 16 '15 at 12:58
  • What version of arc are you using? If 10.1 or above, this would be easier using the arcpy.da cursors. – recurvata Sep 16 '15 at 13:53
  • When using "w_min*ang_ataque", if one is text, you could get a type error! – jbchurchill Sep 16 '15 at 14:07

    sorry not to mention, my arcgis is 10.0 w_min and ang_ataque are float and double type – AndM Sep 16 '15 at 14:26

You need to get the row object first, then you can get the field values. So you can't say:

for Line_code,w_min,ang_ataque in data:

Instead, try changing your loop to:

for row in data:
