I am running a summary statistic on a clip to get acre counts by area type. I want to then add a second field that has the acre count from the total area. A third field be added so that it shows as the percentage of each acre type as compared to the whole area.
First field =
Summary Statistics of area type by acre count
Second field =
Total acres of project area <--- This is where I am having trouble
Third field =
(([first field]/[second field]) * 100)
The problem is, I am trying to get the value from the initial project area using the Get Field Value tool. I am able to do this but when using the Calculate Field tool to calculate the third field, I do not know how to get this option.
Can I set the value from the Get Field Value to a variable then in the Field Calculator use Python to call the variable? Will it recognize the variable?
