I have some pandas code running for 9 different files each day. Currently, I have a scheduled task to run the code at a certain time but sometimes the files have not been uploaded to the SFTP by our client on time which means that the code will fail. I want to create a file checking script.
import os, time filelist = ['file1','file2','file3'] while True: list1 =  for file in filelist: list1.append(os.path.isfile(file)) if all(list1): # All elements are True. Therefore all the files exist. Run %run commands break else: # At least one element is False. Therefore not all the files exist. Run FTP commands again time.sleep(600) # wait 10 minutes before checking again
all() checks if all the elements in the list are
True. If at least one element is
False it returns
