I was handed off a a bunch of state shapefiles and wrote a script to add a few new fields and calculate some attributes. The first line in my script is -
arcpy.AddField_management('C:\WB_prj\cityPts\ghosts.gdb\vietnam_adm3_citypt_albers_ghost', 'City_cnt', 'SHORT', '#', '#', '#', '#', 'NULLABLE', 'NON_REQUIRED', '#')
I have all of the state shapefiles in a geodatabase. The script runs perfect for some of the files but for others I get an error that is shown below. My pathways are correct and I can manually add the fields through ArcMap but when I try and run the script for some of them I get the error. Any ideas on how to solve this? I'm running ArcGIS 10.0
