[Solved] Python Pandas Read Error: OSError: initializing from file failed

Problem Description:

error when loading CSV format data in pandas

B = pd.read_csv("C:/Users/hp/Desktop/Hands-On Data Analysis/Unit 1 Project Collection/train.csv")

report errors:

OSError: Initializing from file failed

Cause analysis:

When calling the read_csv() method of pandas, the C engine is used as the parser engine by default, and when the file name contains Chinese, using the C engine will be wrong in some cases.


Specify the engine as Python when calling the read_csv() method

B = pd.read_csv("C:/Users/hp/Desktop/Hands-On-Data-Analysis/Unit-1-Project-Collection/train.csv",engine='python')
