Using Jupyter on a Mac, I cannot import my .csv Excel file onto Python. I get this error:
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] File b’real_estate_price_size.csv’ does not exist: b’real_estate_price_size.csv’
I got a response from 365 Data Science saying the files must all be in the same directory, though I am not sure which files 365 Data Science is referring to. Any ideas?
This is an issue that occurs due to your specific Anaconda installation. The easiest way to solve this is to reinstall Anaconda. However, we recommend that you use the absolute path of a file when loading the data.
Thus, you can write:
data = pd.read_csv(‘ABSOLUTE_PATH/real_esate_price_size.csv’)
To me this looks like:
data = pd.read_csv('C:/Users/365/Desktop/The Data Science Course 2018 – All Resources/Part_4_Advanced_Statistical_Methods_(Machine_Learning)/S27_L142/real_estate_price _size.csv')
In your case, you can find that by opening the folder containing the files and copy-pasting the path.
Once you copy-paste this path, you should CHANGE ALL SLASHES from backward to forward. This means that if your path is C:\Users\YOUR_COMPUTER_NAME\Desktop\… , you should make it look like: C:/Users/YOUR_COMPUTER_NAME/Desktop/…
Note that, due to the standards for referencing paths, in Python, instead of a backward slash ( \ ), you should use a forward slash ( / ).
You can try this. Should help solve issue.
It worked thanks!
