Removes a subtype from the input table using its code.
Subtypes are removed using their integer code.
The subtypes of a feature class or table can also be managed in ArcCatalog. Subtypes can be created and modified using the Subtypes Property page on the dataset's Properties dialog box.
The Subtype Code parameter's Add Value button is used only in ModelBuilder. In ModelBuilder, where the preceding tool has not been run, or its derived data does not exist, the Subtype Code parameter may not be populated with values. The Add Value button allows you to add expected value(s) so you can complete the Remove Subtype dialog box and continue to build your model.
RemoveSubtype_management (in_table, subtype_code)
The feature class or table containing the subtype definition.
The code used to remove a subtype from the input table or feature class.
Remove Subtype Example (Python Window)
The following Python window script demonstrates how to use the RemoveSubtype function in immediate mode.
import arcpy arcpy.env.workspace = "C:/data/Montgomery.gdb" arcpy.RemoveSubtype_management ("water/fittings", ["4","7"])
Remove Subtype Example 2 (Stand-alone Script)
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)
