: list index out of range

darioromero Registered Posts: 9 ✭✭✭✭

This instruction runs fine in the notebook but when I go back to the recipe and execute it it throws this error:

datatype = df.to_dict('records')[0]['datatype']

<class 'IndexError'>: list index out of range

Is there a sort of custom pandas in the recipe that is not the same as the one in the notebook version?

Thanks in advanced for your help.

    Hi @darioromero
    The error may suggest the df you have in your recipe is empty. You could try to handle this case :

    if not df.empty:data_list = df.to_dict('records')datatype = data_list[0]['datatype']# Perform operations with datatypeelse:# Handle the case when the DataFrame is empty
