I am attempting to iterate over all the feature classes in a folder and I'm getting the error 000368. The other solutions in on SE were not helpful to me unfortunately, so I'm posting a separate question.
search_grids is a list of point feature classes and
searches is a another point feature class.
The points never actually intersect with each other, but I'm using the Select by location tool to select points within a specified distance of each other. This isn't the reason for the error though as I was able to get this to work in the python window in ArcMap.
My code is the following
arcpy.env.workspace = r"C:\workspace" search_grids = arcpy.ListFeatureClasses() searches = r"C:\workspace\search" for grid in search_grids: arcpy.management.SelectLayerByLocation(grid,"INTERSECT",searches,"97.5 meters","NEW_SELECTION","INVERT") arcpy.management.SelectLayerByLocation(grid,"INTERSECT",searches,"2.5 meters","ADD_TO_SELECTION","NOT_INVERT")
Why am I getting this error?
arcgisscripting.ExecuteError: Failed to execute. Parameters are not valid. ERROR 000368: Invalid input data. Failed to execute (SelectLayerByLocation)
