Now I'm trying to make Python script to resolve some problem.

I need too place all out features in Scratch Workspace (Later this script will be used in web GIS and intermediate features mustn't be saved). But when I'm trying to do this i have and 000210 error.

How can i resolve this?

1 Answer 1


I could reproduce your problem. This seems to be a bug since the scratchworkspace page says:

If the scratch workspace environment is set, the autogenerated output path will be the scratch workspace.

There are 2 workarounds:

  1. Mention the full path to the output:

    import arcpy, os ... arcpy.CopyFeatures_management(table, os.path.join(arcpy.env.scratchWorkspace, "table1"))

  2. Create a new geodatabase, set the current workspace to it (arcpy.env.workspace) and delete the geodatabase at the end of your script:

  • Do you mean the first line? It imports the os module used to join both parts of the output path. you could also replace os.path.join(arcpy.env.scratchWorkspace, "table1") with arcpy.env.scratchWorkspace + "\table1" but using os.path.join will work whatever the separator is (\ or \\ or /).

  • Weird, this solved the issue for me. Check that you have write access to the location and that the output doesn't exist yet. Use maybe a gdb name that doesn't start with a number, sometimes ARcGIS doesn't like it (wasn't a problem for me but I'm using 10.2.2)
