Essentially I am trying to calculate a value for a couple of fields after adding them. Below you can see how I am adding the fields and then an example on how my "for" statement is looping through the cursors to add values.

I keep getting an error: "TypeError: sequence size must match size of the row"

I'm not sure what to do about this. Is there a better method than to use the UpdateCursor updateRow statements?

fieldName = ["azVEqSet", "azVERis"]
try:
    arcpy.AddField_management(points, fieldName[0] ,"FLOAT")
    arcpy.AddField_management(points, fieldName[1] ,"FLOAT")
except:
    arcpy.DeleteField_management(points, [fieldName[0], fieldName[1]])
    arcpy.AddField_management(points, fieldName[0] ,"FLOAT")
    arcpy.AddField_management(points, fieldName[1] ,"FLOAT")

cursor = arcpy.da.UpdateCursor(points, ["azVEqSet", "azVERis", "POINT_X", "RASTERVALU", "POINT_Y"])
for row in cursor:
...
     numberInsert = ReturnedVariable
     row[0] = numberInsert
     cursor.updateRow([row])
8

Change:

cursor.updateRow([row])

To:

cursor.updateRow(row)

Explanation:

  • row, which you obtained from the arcpy.da.UpdateCursor is a sequence (a tuple, specifically) of a certain length expected by the updateRow method, and by wrapping row in brackets, you are creating a new sequence (a list, specifically) of length 1, which is not the length expected.
