Problem :

I have the two DataFrames which I would want to merge. I have referred many documents and also tried to perform many operations but I am not sure what to do now. Please find my two  DataFrames as below:

     id      name  type   currency
0  BTTA.S   Apple  Hard      GBp
1  VOOD.S    Soft Soft      GBp


   id         price
BTTA.S     301.2215250
VOOD.S    213.7914000

and I would like to return:

      id    name    type    currency   price
0  BTTA.S   Apple  Hard      GBp  301.2215250
1  VOOD.S    Soft  Soft      GBp  213.7914000

Trying to merge the price column from the DataFrame2 with DataFrame1.

I have already tried many methods of doing this as below :

Result = DataFrame1.merge(DataFrame2[['*.S']], left_on='id', right_index=True) 

But here I met with the exception as below :

ValueError: can not merge DataFrame with instance of type <class 'pandas.core.series.Series'>

Solution :

 The error message clearly indicates that your DataFrame2 is of the type as pd.Series. You must try to convert your DataFrame2 .to_frame() as the .merge() needs the pd.DataFrame() as the input (please see docs to get clarity):
DataFrame1.merge(DataFrame2[['*.S']].to_frame(), left_on='id', right_index=True)

while you probably also just could do following :

DataFrame1.merge(DataFrame2.to_frame(), left_on='id', right_index=True)

Or you can use the pd.DataFrame.join() which accepts the pd.Series.

I hope this will help in resolving your issue.

Problems I am trying to update selected datetime64 values in a pandas data frame using the loc method to select rows satisfying a condition. However, instead of assigning the new date-time value it results in NaT. Here is a simplification of my code that shows the problem: ... as the second element in the new_date column. Any ideas on how this should be done or why this is not working as intended?

Problem : I have the pandas data frame with some of the categorical predictors or variables as 0 & 1, and some of the numeric variables. When I fit that to a stasmodel like below : est = sm.OLS(y, X).fit() It throws the below error : Pandas data ... hundreds of variables. For that I have concatenated the 3 pandas DataFrames to come up with the final DataFrame to be used in the model building.
