I am running python in the ArcGIS python window. ArcGIS shows error message when trying data merge from arcpy.
File "", line 1, in File "c:\program files (x86)\arcgis\desktop10.2\arcpy\arcpy\management.py", line 3816, in Merge raise e ExecuteError: ERROR 000732:
import os import arcpy arcpy.env.workspace = "C:/the shapefile folder/" path = os.listdir("C:/the shapefile folder/")#unzipped all shapefiles to this folder shapefile =  for i in path: suffix = ".shp"; if i.endswith(suffix):#getting all files end with '.shp' to a new list shapefile.append(i) arcpy.Merge_management(shapefile,"C:/output folder")
I don't see where the problem is. Please help diagnose. Thanks!
