UnicodeDecodeError reading a CSV file

HomeCategory: stackoverflowUnicodeDecodeError reading a CSV file
kundan asked 2 weeks ago

I use the following code to read a CSV file:

address=r'C:UsersssadangiDesktopLynda Python data analyticsCh022_05Superstore-Sales.csv'
df=pd.read_csv(address,index_col='Order Date',parse_dates=True)

The code gives me this error:

UnicodeDecodeError                        Traceback (most recent call last)
pandas/_libs/parsers.pyx in pandas._libs.parsers.TextReader._convert_tokens()

pandas/_libs/parsers.pyx in pandas._libs.parsers._string_box_utf8()
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xae in position 16: invalid start byte

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

UnicodeDecodeError                        Traceback (most recent call last)
