I have code to change the path of a shapefile with a specific name. When it finds the same name, the path of the shapefile is changed.
This is the important part of the code:
for mxdFile in arcpy.ListFiles("*.mxd"): mxdPath = env.workspace + "\\" + mxdFile mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(mxdPath) dfList = arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(mxd, "*") print mxdPath for df in dfList: for lyr in arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd, "", df): if lyr.name == layerfile: lyr.replaceDataSource(Folder, "SHAPEFILE_WORKSPACE", NewShapefile) print mxdPath," - changed" mxd.save() del mxd
My problem is that the script saves all the MXD in the same folder of the
.py file. Not just the ones it changed.
If I put the
mxd.save() under the same align of the
if lyr.name == layerfile: it saves just the ones it changes. But, there is a but....
But, the script stops saving through the looping for the dataframes. It changes the first one, then saves. And then, it seems to change in all of DF, because at the it really prints mxdPath," - changed" for each df. But the save just happens at the first DF changing...
How can I fix this?
