Trying to... XML
So yeah, here is a solution that between life and laughs and work, took a good evening with the iffy Runaway Bride playing in the background. It was cute tho, but I digress. Let's do this😊 !! Now I got these sample files from the open source Form 990 AWS repository after the person who showed me that they exist during an internship reminded me they exist while asking about them 🤡. So get your files first and theeeeen let's do this.
ET because you know, the movie (which I haven't seen but I digress... again). I should note - the bulk of this block is from Auntie's initial start. We then worked to get it together to see each result and then add it to a sheet. The stumbling block here was seeing data from all the files instead of just the first file's data in the loop.
201013693492007030_public.xml 201013793492002200_public.xml 200931393493000150_public.xml 201013793491005390_public.xml 201013793491004210_public.xml
YAAAAAAAAAAS!! We're touching all the files. On to the next step 🎉🎉
Also - If you have not seen Runaway Bride, Julia Roberts keeps running away from the groom at the altar right before she marries her husband and Richard Gere (yeah the same people from Pretty Woman) is a reporter who writes about this [phenomenon]. Anywho, the grandma is over here talking about how every time, there is so much cake it's a wonder she's not gained weight 🤣🤣 HILARITY! Anywho, let's see if our saving thing works
The long way to inspect the data...
BUT what if I don't want to inspect it...
You can use the Python file manipulation modules like so! 👇🏽👇🏽 This is another example of a built in module that you don't have to import.
LOOK AT US!! We did it 🎇✨🎊 So lesson is, loops are fun but hard and now we gotta have dinner and find something else to entertain us as we wind down for the night. Thanks for reading this code and movie version of Netflix and chill. Buh byeeee 👋🏽👋🏽
