Complete arcpy beginner here...
I have a shapefile with the fields
I have a list in Python
gdppop2002 = [['Country1, 234.1232341], [Country2, 23.2341234],...etc...]
I'm trying to write each float value in the list to the corresponding country row in the shapefile's attribute table. I need to check if each Country in
gdppop2002 matches a
CNTRY_NAME, and then write the float value in the list to
GDP_HEAP. From a couple of hours of googling this appears to require creating an insert cursor, but I'm a little lost. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction?
