I'm using ESRI's LocalGovernmentMI.gdb data model and am managaing parcel data in a ParcelFabric dataset. I'm trying to use a search cursor on the ParcelFabric_Parcels dataset but I recieve this ...

RuntimeError: cannot open 'P:\Mapping\Data\LocalGovernmentMI.gdb\ParcelEditing\ParcelFabric\ParcelFabric_Parcels'

I'm using this but of code ...

import arcpy

fc = r'P:\Mapping\Data\LocalGovernmentMI.gdb\ParcelEditing\ParcelFabric\ParcelFabric_Parcels'
field = "Name"

with arcpy.da.SearchCursor(fc, field) as cursor:
    for row in cursor:
        print (row)

If I export the dataset and run the search cursor on that data it works. Any thoughts?

  • What are you trying to achieve? – gm70560 May 21 '13 at 17:25
  • I'm in the processe of trying to build a Python add-in tool that takes an input value ( user clicks on a parcel, a SelectByLocation task is executed using a PointGeometry, then the value from the "Name" field of that selected parcel is passed to the search cursor which will help identify all parcels having that value). – dchaboya May 21 '13 at 17:40

Arcpy.da.SearchCursor accepts, "feature class, layer, table, or table view" as the in_table. After looking at the Parcel Fabric page, I would suggest Make Parcel Fabric Table View (Parcel Fabric). This will give you a temporary table to use with the cursor.

  • Thank you, this works. Would have been better to use the cursor on the parcel fabric dataset, but i'll still take it. – dchaboya May 21 '13 at 19:57
