Ok, my frustration has hit epic proportions. I am new to Pandas and trying to use it on an excel db i have, however, i cannot seem to figure out what should be a VERY simple action.
I have a dataframe as such:
ID UID NAME STATE 1 123 Bob NY 1 123 Bob PA 2 124 Jim NY 2 124 Jim PA 3 125 Sue NY
all i need is to be able to locate and print the ID of a record by the unique combination of UID and STATE.
The closest I can come up with is this:
temp_db = fd_db.loc[(fd_db['UID'] == "1") & (fd_db['STATE'] == "NY")]
but this still grabs all UID and not ONLY the one with the STATE
Then, when i try to print the result
I need just the data and not the structure.
My end result needs to be just to print to the screen : 1
Any help is much appreciated.
fd_db.loc[(fd_db['UID'] == 123) & (fd_db['STATE'] == 'NY')]['ID'].iloc
I think it’s because your UID condition is wrong : the UID column an Integer and you give a String.
For example when I run this :
df.loc[(df['UID'] == "123") & (df['STATE'] == 'NY')]
The output is :
Empty DataFrame Columns: [ID, UID, NAME, STATE] Index: 
but when I consider UID as an Integer :
df.loc[(df['UID'] == 123) & (df['STATE'] == 'NY')]
It output :
ID UID NAME STATE 0 1 123 Bob NY
I hope that will help you !
