How do I use tabs and spaces? (how to resolve error TabError: inconsistent)
#1
Hello I like to import transactions into Gnu-Cash. By default my bank export is not suitable for Gnu-cash. To make it suitable I need to run it through a Python script. I am using this script below that I found on the internet. I assume that I can use this script because it was publicly available. I was not able to approach the author of the script.

While running the script it give the error TabError: inconsistent use of tabs and spaces in indentation

So I replaced all the tabs with spaces, but that gave a error that said that I had to use spaces.

I am not a programmer; my goals is to use this script to import data into Gnu Cash. I hope someone can help me to run this script, so I can start using Gnu-cash.

Note: This code has python 2 prints, if you are running this in python 3 the prints will need changing.
for example
print "No input file name given!"
will need changing to
print("No input file name given!")

Now it it gives the IndexError: list index out of range line 59
bank = Bank(sys.argv[1])

When you run the program you need to pass an argument. The program checks this, but in the wrong place. Your code should look like this:
if len(sys.argv) < 2:
    print "No input file name given!"
    exit()
bank = Bank(sys.argv[1])
bank.gencsvk()
Now if you forget to provide a filename you will get the informative message "No input file name given!" instead of an obscure error message about index out of range.

To use this program you will use a command like "python knab.py somefilename" where "somefilename" is the name of a file that appears to contain transactions.

Running the commando python knab.py import.csv gave the error.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\TMP\knab.py", line 63, in <module>
bank.gencsvk()
File "C:\TMP\knab.py", line 30, in gencsvk
writer.writerow(["Rekening", "Datum", "Omschrijving",
TypeError: a bytes-like object is required, not 'str'



I use Python 3.9.5 on Windows 10, also the the csv has two more columns (Referentie;Boekdatum;)

Well that is weird. I'm not sure but I see you are opening the outputfile as "wb" (= write binary). Perhaps you should open the file as "w" instead.

When you make writer it's bytes because of wb.
Then nrow need to bytes as can not mix string and bytes one of the big changes when moving to Python 3 from 2.
So convert before write.
>>> nrow = 'hello world'
>>> type(nrow)
<class 'str'>
>>> nrow = nrow.encode() # Same as encode('utf-8')
>>> type(nrow)
<class 'bytes'>
The other way is to make like this with w and use encoding(default is utf-8),but should specify like this as eg OS can mess it some times.
ofile = open(self.ofname, "w", encoding='utf-8')
writer = csv.writer(ofile, delimiter=',',

I have replace line 27 ofile = open(self.ofname, "wb") with

ofile = open(self.ofname, "w", encoding='utf-8')
No I am getting the error's

I do not understand the how to use to code below. I am not a programmer, My goal is to make this script to work with Gnu Cash

Because that's is old Python 2 code .next() have been change to next().
So it should be.
next(reader)  # indentation was wrong on this line
next(reader)  # indentation was wrong on this line

It was demo of how to use encode() when you usewb in original code.
Then all need to be bytes,can not be string.
# line 30
writer.writerow([b"Rekening", b"Datum", b"Omschrijving",
                        b"Toelichting", b"Opname", b"Storting"])

# Line 56
writer.writerow(nrow.encode())
