Import Excel File that Starts with Number

P: 1
Hello all -

I have files I'm trying to import. I do not name these files, they're created by another department. The files start with a number, usually the year. Each time I try to do so I get an error message:

FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'N:\\Learing KPI Report\Background Files\X818 Online.xlsx'
The file name is '2018 Online' so not sure why it appears as 'X818' in the error message.

I'm using pandas to import:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. import pandas as pd
  2. df = pd.read_excel ("N:\Learing KPI Report\Background Files\X818 Online.xlsx")
I tried importing another file from the same folder that did not start with a number just for kicks and giggles and it imported just fine.

Any assistance is appreciated.

The error message shows X818 because in the code you wrote X818
