I am new to python, so bear with me. Trying running reclassify in pyscripter returns the error:

Message File Name Line Position
Reclassify C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.1\arcpy\arcpy\sa\Functions.py 5236
swapper C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.1\arcpy\arcpy\sa\Utils.py 47

ExecuteError: ERROR 999999: Error executing function. Failed to open raster dataset Failed to execute (Reclassify).

My code is simple, and it works in the python window in arcmap, so I am guessing it has something to do with how i set pyscripter up. I successfully tried SplineWithBarriers, so it is working:

# Import system modules
import arcpy
from arcpy import env
from arcpy.sa import *

# Set environment settings
env.workspace = "V:/USER/b/Processing"

# Set local variables
inRaster = "barr7"
reclassField = "VALUE"
remap =  RemapValue([[1,9],[2,8],[3,1],[4,6],[5,3],[6,3],[7,1]])


# Execute Reclassify
outReclassify = Reclassify(inRaster, reclassField, remap, "NODATA")
  • I am not using geodatabases. The save part is not responsible for the error, so i removed it from the question. – Jeppe Olsen May 4 '17 at 7:50
  • Yes, its a file of type: "File System Raster". In the python window in ArcMap it is not necessary to specify more. – Jeppe Olsen May 4 '17 at 7:54
  • so what should i add to the barr7? – Jeppe Olsen May 4 '17 at 8:02

I just tested this script and it work well, try to use it as an example:

import arcpy

inRaster = r"G:\TEST_DEL\raster.tif"
outRaster = r"G:\TEST_DEL\raster_out.tif"

reclassField = "VALUE"
remap = arcpy.sa.RemapValue([[0,9999]])


outReclassify = arcpy.sa.Reclassify(inRaster, reclassField, remap, "NODATA")


enter image description here

  • This works, not sure why though. You put in r before filenames and arcpy.sa. before RemapValue. But thanks. – Jeppe Olsen May 4 '17 at 12:11
