I get a Value Error when I try to read in the JSON files in this project. Any ideas?

Hey Chilly,

If you do not mind, post your code on how you’re accessing the json file.

I a trying but I keep getting a 403 error

Hey Chilly,

Thanks for posting this. When you say you are getting an 403 Error, are you referring to a HTTP response?
If so, that is Forbidden Response, meaning the server understands the request but refuses to authorize it…

Are you making a request to a url to get these json files, Or are you just opening local json files?

On line 8, try removing the .icloud from yelp_business.json and run your code. I’m thinking that could be what’s triggering a 403 Error response. Let me know if that resolves your issue.

I was getting 403 errors when I posted my code to this forum. Not sure why. But when I posted the screenshot it did not give me a 403 error.

I do get the same Value error, with and without the .icloud in the file name. I think it must be my python or pandas but I can’t figure it out.

Thanks for your help
