I am trying to write a short snippet of code to break a shapefile up according to a specific attribute.
Here is my code:
from qgis.core import * import processing layer = processing.getObject('2012') #counter is 15 due to limit R15 counter = 1 # Write the while filter expression and set it while (counter <= 15): selection = layer.getFeatures(QgsFeatureRequest().setFilterExpression('"Group Comp" LIKE \'R'+str(counter)+'\' ')) layer.setSelectedFeatures([k.id() for k in selection]) #Creates layer from selection _writer = QgsVectorFileWriter.writeAsVectorFormat(i,r"E:\Scratch\test\NewFile"+str(counter)+".shp","utf-8",None,"ESRI Shapefile", True) counter = counter + 1
I get the following error in Qgis when running the above code:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "<input>", line 5, in <module> NameError: name 'i' is not defined
Is my selection of the layer incorrect?
