I have a MXD with some layers that have parentheses in them. I'd like to rename them via script.
Is this a valid approach?
import re map = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT") layers = arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(map) for layer in layers: if re.search("[()]", layer.name): newName = re.sub("[()]", "", layer.name) arcpy.Rename_management(layer, newName)
Rename_management is giving me an error:
Runtime error : ERROR 000840: The value is not a Data Element.
