FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory in Python

Dung Do Tien Aug 15 2021 59

I have created a project in Python 3.8.2 and I want to read data from a csv file as below:

 import csv

with open('student.csv','r') as file:
    student = csv.reader(file)

print(student)  

When running the app I get an error throw FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

 Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "main.py", line 3, in <module>
    with open('student.csv','r') as file:
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'student.csv'

And below is my struct file:

 ReadFileExample
└── app
    ├── main.py 
    └── student.csv

I don't know why my file is not found??

Please help me if you know any reason.

    Might be you are in the wrong folder. You can get the exact working folder as below:

     import os
    # get current working directory
    cwd = os.getcwd()
    print(cwd)
    
    #get files in directory
    files = os.listdir(cwd) 
    
    print(files)

    It helps you get an absolute path file. I hope it is useful for you.

    Why do you not try using the absolute path file as below:

     import csv
    with open('C:\\your_path\\student.csv', 'r') as f:
