Somewhat of a beginner in pandas.
I am trying to clean data in a specific column by removing a series of characters.
Currently the data looks like this:
**Column A** (F) Red Apples (F) Oranges Purple (F)Grapes (F) Fried Apples
I need to remove the (F)
I used …
df[‘Column A’]=df[‘Column A’].str.replace(‘[(F)]’,’ ‘)
This successfully removed the (F) but it also removed the other F letters (for example Fried Apples = ied Apples) How can I only remove the “series” of characters.
Try this –
0 Red Apples 1 Oranges 2 Purple Grapes 3 Fried Apples Name: Column A, dtype: object
df['Column A'].str.replace('(F)','', regex=False)
