So what I am working on is taking a csv file and only taking 2 columns from
the spreadsheet and out putting that to a text file. Then taking those two
columns and organize them by product(key) and outputting the
description(values) that are associated. Some products have a lot of
duplicate descriptions and I am trying to get the counts of those. I have a
piece of code that takes anything greater then 5 and prints that and also
anything 4 or less goes into an 'other' category with the counts.So what I
am trying to do now is import a csv and change it to a text file with the
same naming convention as the csv. But I want the text file to have the
results from the json function. I want the text file that I am trying to
output to have the same name as the filename I am importing. The file that
I am inputting in the def populate_dict (usually the files are named
weekly_and the date...ex: weekly_20160102.csv) and then i want to run all
my code i have, but then in the def json_output instead of having the
filename which i have now is 'test.txt' I want to have weekly_20160102.txt
same naming convention as the csv file i am inputting. In my code I am soft
coding the filename so that the user is prompted to enter what file they
want to use.
