Remarks[edit | edit source]

This example uses a Search Cursor from the Data Access (da) module of ArcPy.

Do not confuse arcpy.da.SearchCursor syntax with the earlier and slower arcpy.SearchCursor().

The Data Access module (arcpy.da) has only been available since ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop.

Printing one field's value for all rows of feature class in file geodatabase using Search Cursor[edit | edit source]

To print a test field (TestField) from a test feature class (TestFC) in a test file geodatabase (Test.gdb) located in a temporary folder (C:\Temp):

with arcpy.da.SearchCursor(r"C:\Temp\Test.gdb\TestFC",["TestField"]) as cursor:
    for row in cursor:
        print row[0]

createDissolvedGDB to create a file gdb on the workspace[edit | edit source]

def createDissolvedGDB(workspace, gdbName):
    gdb_name = workspace + "/" + gdbName + ".gdb"

        arcpy.CreateFileGDB_management(workspace, gdbName, "")
        arcpy.CreateFileGDB_management(workspace, gdbName, "")

    return gdb_name
