I have generated about 90 maps through data driven pages(ArcGIS 10.0). I now want to export them as .jpg files in either landscape or portrait format. I tried python but it is not working, it worked to export as.png though.

I'm simply reposting the code from above as an answer because I found it really useful but it took ages to find:
import_path = r"..." # Path of .mxd export_path = r"..." # Path of output file field_name = "Name" # Name of field used to sort DDP mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(import_path) for i in range(1, mxd.dataDrivenPages.pageCount + 1): mxd.dataDrivenPages.currentPageID = i row = mxd.dataDrivenPages.pageRow print row.getValue(field_name) arcpy.mapping.ExportToJPEG(mxd, export_path + "." + row.getValue(field_name) + ".jpg") del mxd
