I have a csv file of service price list where column a = name of service and column b = has price.
I need to make a function like def pricelist("servicepricelist.csv", "servicename") -- the first part states the file, the second part is asking to pull an element in the row of the file like "washing".
I need to somehow, make the washing or whatever service is entered match the csv file column a and then print the value from column b
the output has to be like:
Although I have not tested it, the following script should accomplish what you're looking for:
import csv def price_list(path: str, service: str) -> str: value = None with open(path, newline='') as file: for name, price in csv.reader(file): if name == service: value = price break return value if __name__ == '__main__': path = input('Path to csv: ') service = input('Service name: ') print(price_list(path, service))
All it does is import the standard library's
csv module, open the file, iterate over its contents until it finds the service, and print out the corresponding price.
