I have multiple shapefiles, in different sources (D:\GIS\Folder A", "D:\GIS_Temp\Name". And some of them have space in their name (File X, File Y, etc).
What should be the code that could rename all shapefiles in those folders, and change space with underscore, so the name of shapefiles would be File_X, File_Y, and so on...
When I try with this code:
import os, sys, arcpy InWork = ["D:\\GIS_Temp\Folder A", "D:\\GIS_Temp\\Folder B", "D:\\GIS_Temp\\Folder C"] arcpy.env.workspace = InWork for thisFC in arcpy.ListFeatureClasses(): newName = thisFC.replace(" ","_") arcpy.Rename_management(thisFC,newName)
I put the folders in InWork, and I still get an error.
Runtime error Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 3, in File "c:\program files\arcgis\desktop10.1\arcpy\arcpy\geoprocessing_base.py", line 515, in set_ self[env] = val File "c:\program files\arcgis\desktop10.1\arcpy\arcpy\geoprocessing_base.py", line 567, in setitem ret_ = setattr(self._gp, item, value) RuntimeError: Object: Error in accessing environment
What am I doing wrong?
