Creating an ordinal list

Creating an ordinal list

Creating an ordinal list

Thank you in advance for your help.

There is a products table in a csv that has multiple products. I need to create an ordinal list of the ranking of the products in descending order, so that a list is created with the ranking of the products most sold.

I thought that using the dictionary comprehensions are te way to go, but couldn't get further than the code below, which creates a list of the products alphabetically but doesnt list rank them as the products most sold.


labels = df['PRODUCT_NAME'].astype('category').cat.categories.tolist()
replace_map_comp = {'PRODUCT_NAME' : {k: v for k,v in zip(labels,list(range(1,len(labels)+1)))}}


Many thanks and let me know if you need more information.

RE: Creating an ordinal list

Could you give an example of the data you are putting in (10 rows will do) and the order you expect to get?

RE: Creating an ordinal list

Would really want to see the kind of data that you put in, so can you share some? And what kind of order is needed?
