I created a buffer, then converted polygon to line (around a city block). I want to select the internal line. I'm thinking since there is no uniform way that ArcGIS labels the interior or exterior buffer line, I can use length to select the line I want by using an if/then statement. I have not been able to find the script command that simply selects a feature/line. Anyone know?

    can you please illustrate what you want ? I do not understand what you want to select. – radouxju Apr 25 '14 at 12:43
  • I created a buffer around a closed line, and then converted the buffer into an inner and outer line. I want to select the inner line by selecting by attribute: length. Thus could also be done by selecting the right record in the attribute table, but length would be the key. – user29613 Apr 26 '14 at 13:44

You may be looking for the Select Layer by Attribute (Data Management) geoprocessing tool.
