Python save csv to folder

In Python (pandas), saving a .csv file to a particular folder is not that hard, but then it may be confusing to beginners.

The packages we need to import are:

import pandas as pd
import os.path

Say, your folder name is called “myfolder”, and the dataframe you have is called “df”. To save it insider “myfolder” as “yourfilename.csv”, the following code does the job:

df.to_csv(os.path.join('myfolder','yourfilename.csv'))

The reason this may be difficult for beginners is that beginners may not know of the existence of the os.path.join method, which is the recommended method for joining one or more path components.
