Resolved: FileNotFoundError what locating the CSV
I am having trouble getting this to read the file provided.
I am typing
df_used_cars = pd.read_csv("C:/Users/user/Downloads/bar_chart_data.csv")
But I keep getting an error.
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'C:/Users/user/Downloads/bar_chart_data.csv'
Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening?
thanks for reaching out! So the error you're getting means that either the file path or the files name are incorrect. To troubleshoot you can do the following:
1. Make sure you download the csv file from this lecture:
2. It could be in a .zip file, if so you should unzip it.
3. A) Make sure that your Jupyter notebook is in the same directory as the downloaded bar_chart_data.csv. Then you can read it into a pandas data frame with the following command:
df_used_cars = pd.read_csv("bar_chart_data.csv")
3 B) Alternatively, you can add the file path to the directory where you've downloaded the file. Make sure you use the forward slashes when adding the path, like so:
df_used_cars = pd.read_csv("C:/Provideyourownpath/bar_chart_data.csv")
Hope this helps!
Thank you so much <3 it worked! I had the wrong file format. I was using the .xlsx from the previous lesson.
