Python Pandas: KeyError: False

0 votes

Hi. I have written a python pandas script

old_df = pd.read_csv('User data.csv')
up_df = {'Name': names, 'New Points': point_list}
for name in up_df['Name']:
    for old_name in old_df['Name']:
        if name==old_name:
            i=(old_df[old_df['Name']==old_name].index.values)
            j=(up_df[up_df['Name']==name].index.values)
            print(j[0])
            old_df.at[i[0],'New Points']=up_df[j[0],'New Points']

But I am getting this error at the bold line in the script above

KeyError: False

Please help

The reason for this error is that you have created a dictionary

up_df = {'Name': names, 'New Points': point_list}

but you are treating it as a pandas dataframe

j=(up_df[up_df['Name']==name].index.values)

You have to create a pandas dataframe first. So try this:

up_df1 = {'Name': names, 'New Points': point_list}
up_df=pd.DataFrame(up_df1)
