Updating and fixing data sources with arcpy.mapping

Recommended Posts

Dear GIS Area,


I am trying to use arcpy.mapping for finding and fixing broken data links. I've followed the instructions from the ArcGIS Help but it's not success. Could somebody suggest me what happens? I am using ArcGIS 10.2.

Originally the shp files located in "F:/Data/GIS File" and it's migrated into "F:/Data/GIS". The mxd files located in "F:/Data/Example.mxd". Refer to arcgis help i wrote the scripts as quoted below, but nothing happens. Could somebody help me? 



mxd= arcpy.mapping.MapDocument (r "F:/Data/Example.mxd")

mxd.findAndReplaceWorkspacePaths (r"F:/Data/GIS File", r"F:/Data/GIS")

mxd.save ()

It's work now, Thanks. When I used path "/" there is no error notification come up. In python the legal path are:


"F:/Data", "F:\\Data", "F:\Data", usually i used this path "F:/Data" for another function, and it's works. Does every types of path has to be use for any certain function in python? or i can use all of those type of path for any function?
