How can I get a sequence of numbers 1,2,3,4 from the model below Is there any code I can use in Arcgis to do this in the field Calculator

  • Please use the code sample {} to format your data after pasting them into the question. – ahmadhanb Feb 27 '18 at 8:38

It's fairly simple but not obvious, you need to use a global variable:

Base = 0
def CalcThis():
  global Base
  Base += 1
  return Base

then in the Field= box type CalcThis(), this increments the Base by one and returns it, so you need to set Base to one less than what you want the first number to be.

    +1 This is a much better solution than the old Esri standby: support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000011137 – Aaron Feb 27 '18 at 4:40

    It's fairly much the same @Aaron except that code has a bug: if your start (pStart) value is 0 all the results are 0. I can say though that I developed this method independently. – Michael Stimson Feb 27 '18 at 4:46
