Problem :

I wanted to read all the csv files from my folder and after that concatenate them to create a big csv file. The structure of all my files was the same, After concatenating I want to save it and read it again. All this was done by me using Pandas. But I am facing the Error while reading.

Below is my csv reader code :-

import csv
with open("C:\mywork\DATA\Raw_data\\store.csv",'rb') as csv:
csvreader = csv. csvreader (csv)
l = list(csvreader)

My Error:-

Error                                     Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-36-9249469f31a6> in <module>()
1 with open('C:\ mywork \DATA\Raw_data\\store.csv', 'rb') as csv:
2     csvreader = csv. csvreader (csv)
----> 3     l = list(csvreader)
Error: new-line character seen in unquoted field - do you need to open the file in universal-newline mode?

Solution :

I also faced this error in recent past, the root cause I found was that there were some carriage returns "\r" in my data that pandas was using as the line terminator similar to "\n". I guess I want to share it here as that may be a common reason behind this error

The solution which I found was to add the lineterminator='\n' into my read_csv function as follows:

df_clean = pd.read_csv('test_myerror.csv',lineterminator='\n')
