I am new to python, and have not successfully coded an Update Cursor. I am unable to understand the documentation.
I have a geodatabase table of wells that i have built using python. I now want to loop through each row and update a field. the table contains a field called 'MD' which is type double and contains a depth value. I need to look at a second field called 'FM_Name' for two text strings that indicate the TOP and BOTTOM of a certain perforation zone. So, the cursor would loop though the rows which are sorted in ascending order, and update 'FM_Name' field with the word "Perf" in between the TOP and BOTTOM for each well.
This table has over 50K records, representing roughly 300 wells, so i really dont want to do this by hand.
