Validate CSV File In Python

Last updated June 21, 2023 by Jarvis Silva

In this tutorial we will see how to validate CSV file in python, CSV is a file format which is used in excel spreadsheet so if you are working with csv files in python then you need to validate it before processing.

So to create this program I will use pandas library, it is a very powerful library when comes to data analysis so let’s see how to use it.

Python Script To Validate CSV File

import pandas as pd

    df = pd.read_csv('test.csv')
    print("CSV file is valid")
except Exception as e:
    print(f"CSV file not valid: {e}")

Above is the code for validating a csv file, the program is very simple we try to read a csv file using the pandas read_csv method now we do this inside try and except so if the csv is not valid it directly throw an error and we catch it in except block.

you can run this program on your computer or using an online compiler.
