FileNotFoundError when running: `df = pd.read_csv('Data.csv')`

I am doing the “Chains in LangChain” class, and I am not able to download the sample data using the syntax described in the course. Any advice about how I can get past this? (I copied the code from the course notebook, so am sure I don’t have any typos). This does work in the sample notebook supplied with the course.

I feel like I need to download that file onto my computer, but I am not clear where to find it, or if this is the step I need to do (this is not explained in the course materials).

My complete code:

import pandas as pd
df = pd.read_csv('Data.csv')

results in the following error:

FileNotFoundError                         Traceback (most recent call last)

FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'Data.csv'

Hi @boogermike

I tried it and had no problems loading the dataset.

Did you run all the cells from top to bottom?

Hi @boogermike,

Based on this, I’m assuming you are trying to run this locally. Yes, you need all the relevant files and data kn order to run this locally.

Go to the short course’s lecture page and wait for the notebook to load. Once loaded, click on File-->Open... on the top left. It should open things in a new tab, where you’ll see the workspaces and all the files which you can download.



Thanks for your response @Mubsi - you are totally correct, and starting the notebook in the way you suggested DID solve my issue.

I have been creating local notebooks, and that didn’t work for this lab.

Really appreciate your help!

After starting the notebook in the suggested way, I could find the Data.csv file, which I downloaded to the same folder where my local notebook is, and the file was able to be located (and I could complete the lab).
