Because in ArcGIS 10.0 there is still no simple toolbox function to convert labels to Annotation, I try to go a substitude way with the callable Toolbox function [TiledLabelsToAnnotation][1] on a polygon shape, which covers all of my data area (= 1 polygon).

The script is now running, because of the simplifications for the posting!

import arcpy

# Settings
scale = "30000"  
folder = "D:\Temp\LBL.gdb"  
arcpy.env.workspace = folder  

# Mapdocument
map = r"D:\Temp\MAP-LBL.mxd"  

# Local variables:
dataFrame = "Layer"  
grid = "Grid"  
group = "Group"  
suffix = "Anno"  
fid = "tile"  
link = "STANDARD"  # not linked = "STANDARD" / linked = "FEATURE_LINKED"   

# Process: Tiled Labels To Annotation
arcpy.TiledLabelsToAnnotation_cartography(map, dataFrame, grid, folder, group, suffix, scale, "", fid, "", "", link, unplace)

    Please post your script. It is impossible for us to figure out what is causing the error if we cannot see what you have. It sounds like a syntax problem if you can run it manually and in Model Builder. – Get Spatial Apr 25 '13 at 7:04
