The following stand-alone script demonstrates how to use the RemoveSubtype function as part of a workflow to remove subtypes from a subtype definition.
#Name: RemoveSubtype.py # Purpose: Remove subtypes from a subtype definition # Import system modules import arcpy try: # Set the workspace (to avoid having to type in the full path to the data every time) arcpy.env.workspace = "C:/data/Montgomery.gdb" #Set local parameters inFeatures = "water/fittings" stypeList = ["5", "6", "7"] # Process: Remove Subtype Codes... arcpy.RemoveSubtype_management(inFeatures, stypeList) except Exception as err: print(err.args)
