Import pandas is working in Terminal, but not running in Jupyter Notebook (on Mac)

Hello, everyone!

I’m doing Data Science Career Path and having an issue related (as I consider) to a conflict between two versions of Python installed on my Mac.

The problem is that the command “import pandas as pd” is running in the Terminal successfully, but in Jupyter Notebook it returns an error: “ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘pandas’”.

Have anyone had this issue? Thanks in advance for your help! :pray:t4:

It means that pandas is installed in different path than Jupyter notebook.

Where did you install Pandas?

Also—does it work in Colab?

I can’t recall if you had used pip to install things.

Did you try:
!pip install pandas in the notebook itself?

Did you see this? (midway down the page):

But, as I mentioned above, Pandas is installed/lives in a different place than where Jupyter was installed. They need to be in the same place.

Hello, lisalisaj!

After !pip install pandas in the notebook itself I get these messages:

Requirement already satisfied: pandas in /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.8/lib/python3.8/site-packages (1.4.2)

When you installed pandas, did you do a conda install pandas where python 3.8 lives??

Where did you install Jupyter and did you use conda or pip to install it?
conda install -c conda-forge jupyterlab
pip3 install jupyter
