    for row in rows: 
        if (line.VEHICLEID == row.VEHICLEID) and (line.TIME != row.TIME):
           row.SUB = "36_1"

Runtime error Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 3, in File "d:\program files (x86)\arcgis\desktop10.3\arcpy\arcpy\management.py", line 3243, in AddField raise e ExecuteError: ERROR 000732: Input Table: Dataset testSUBorigin does not exist or is not supported

I want to add Subtrack point name attribute according to the get_on and drop_off points,But I don't know the mistake,and I don't know whether the idea is true.I sincerely hope someone do the similar work can help me.

    You should copy your code and format it instead of posting a picture of it Mar 28, 2018 at 3:12
  • For questions that involve code we ask that you show us where you are stuck with your own code by including a code snippet in your question. There is an edit button beneath your question which will enable you to do that and a {} button that enables you to format any highlighted code nicely.

You have an assignment in your if line rather than a logical comparison.

Change the line that says:

if (line.VEHICLEID = row.VEHICLEID) and (line.TIME != row.TIME): 


if (line.VEHICLEID == row.VEHICLEID) and (line.TIME != row.TIME): 

Further, if you're using ArcGIS 10.1 or above, it's recommended that you use the arcpy.da.SearchCursor, rather than arcpy.SearchCursor
