I am building a script that appends features from one layer to another however some of the fields that I need populated are not titled the same which causes them to stay null. How can I set the row in the update cursor command to equal the field from the original feature class? Code snippet below.
Original feature layer & field: mainLayer \ MainLineType
New feature layer & field: rLinesLayer \ FeatureType
Need to set "rLinesLayer \ FeatureType" (row) = "mainLayer \ MainLineType" (circled in red)
