I am writing a python script which duplicates a field. The field contains names of pipelines but some of these names has double quotation (ex. 8" NGL PIPELINE). I have created a new field and trying to copy the attributes using:
arcpy.CalculateField_management(PL_XING_SUMMARY,"PLNAME", "'!FIRST_PLNA!'", "PYTHON_9.3");
But the script double quotes whole attributes (ex. "8" NGL PIPELINE"). Is there a way to remove the double quotation marks at the start and end of each attribute?
P.S. I am using ArcGIS version 10.1 Service Pack 5
