When i trying to do Select by location i got : arcgis scripting. ExecuteError: Failed to execute. Parameters are not valid. ERROR 000368: Invalid input data. Failed to execute (SelectLayerByLocation)

I am trying to excecute select by location on current selected feature after select by attribute.

env.workspace = "C:\temp"

input = 'C:\\temp\M0TASHT\M0TASHT.gdb\sLine'
input1= 'C:\\temp\M0TASHT\M0TASHT.gdb\sManhole'
arcpy.MakeFeatureLayer_management('sManhole', 'sManhole_lyr')
in_features = 'sManhole_lyr'
where_clause = '"ManholeSubtype" = ('"4515" ')'
arcpy.SelectLayerByAttribute_management(in_features, "NEW_SELECTION", where_clause)
arcpy.SelectLayerByLocation_management("C:\\temp\M0TASHT\M0TASHT.gdb\sLine", "INTERSECT", "sManhole_lyr", "", "NEW_SELECTION")

Instead of


you need to double all your back slashes to escape them i.e.


And instead of

where_clause = '"ManholeSubtype" = ('"4515" ')'


where_clause = ' "ManholeSubtype" = ' + " '4515' "


where_clause = ' ' ' "ManholeSubtype" = 4515 ' ' '

Which will depend on whether the field is text or integer.
