I have a dictionary called table. I want to assign this number to the below dic key. it keeps giving me an error saying "invalid token". I have tried converting it string, int, and float but to no avail
table['Fac_ID'] = 00000038058
Don't convert it to a string, use it as a string in the first place:
>>> table['Fac_ID'] = str(00000038058) File "<stdin>", line 1 table['Fac_ID'] = str(00000038058) ^ SyntaxError: invalid token >>> table['Fac_ID'] = '00000038058' >>> print table['Fac_ID'] 00000038058
str, as any function, evaluates the argument to a value before passing it in, so if there was an invalid token before str, using str is not going to change that. You need to use a valid token, so just hardcode the string.
