The code is as follows:

for row in students_list:
    first, middle, last, birth = row["first"], row["middle"], row["last"], row["birth"]
    print(f"{first} {middle + ' ' if middle else ''}{last}, born {birth}")

Output is as follows:

How am I supposed to fix this? I would appreciate even a clue to what is causing the problem. Thanks.

  • I think the problem is with your import. Is there a chance you are importing each line thrice? – RandomForestRanger Jul 13 '20 at 10:37

Each record is in the database multiple times. Possible causes:

  • import is run multiple times

  • there is a bug in import which inserts multiple rows for each line in the csv.

The data needs to be deleted from the database. That can be done in sqlite3 using the DELETE keyword. Then the cause can be determined.

  • Thanks for the help, but it turned out to be some 'intrinsic' bug that printed the numbers that way, and even then check50 considered my output correct somehow. Anyway, thanks for answering :) – Bryson Ang Jul 13 '20 at 23:22
  • FWIW check50 would have imported once into an empty database, and thus given the correct output. Unless there's a bug in the unshown code, I stick by my answer. – DinoCoderSaurus Jul 14 '20 at 0:33
  • I see what you mean. But thanks for your advice :)) – Bryson Ang Jul 14 '20 at 5:46
