Hello Everyone,

I have a question regarding for loops. I have a for loop that I would like to iterate through directories, subdirectories, and files looking for .*gz file extensions and then unpacking them to a list which I would later like to turn into a Pandas data frame.

I'm using this loop:

After running the above-mentioned code, I get the following error message:

"NameError Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-5-40ae48c7e923> in <module>()
10 pdFrame.append(value)
11 data_frame = pd.concat(pdFrame, axis=1, ignore_index=False)
---> 12 data_frame.to_csv('final_samples.csv', header=True)

NameError: name 'data_frame' is not defined"

From what I found so far, it seems like one of my variables is not being defined because my if clause is not being evaluated as true. I have tried initializing the data_frame variable outside of the loop, however that hasn't fixed the problem. Can someone possibly help me with this?

What I have tried:

I have tried using the following loop to check if my value is not null as follows:
