Help! AssertionError in Python 3

0 Kristine Birkeland · March 31, 2015

Have a minor setback with my code. Because of confidentiality I cant publish the whole code, so forgive me if it is somewhat vague..

I have a variable f = os.path.join(Path, 'Attachements', filename), which looks like this: "D:\Dump\Date_2015 03 31-11 03 42_b'33'\Attachments\TEST.txt"

Path and filename is variables that is generated automaticly.
Then I have a script that contains a test for "assert os.path.isfile(path) or os.path.isdir(path)", among other things. 

Now, if I call this script using this line of code:
- vt.send_files(list_all_files("D:\Dump\Date_2015 03 31-11 03 42_b'33'\Attachments\TEST.txt"))
The code works just fine!

But if i use the variable (which I have to in order for the program to work), like this: 
- vt.send_files(list_all_files(f))
The AssertionError pops up!

Would appreciate if anyone could help me with this one! And again, sorry for the somewhat confusing explaining. Also my first time asking for help so, yes Im a bit newbie at this.

Well, found the problem. What a coffee break can do..! Just one simple adjustment and it was working smooth as ever.

That's why the good tech companies have ping pong tables and video games everywhere.  So you can step back and take a break.   I can't tell you how many times I seen someone at work playing Foosball stop and say "OHHHH, Why did I think of that before..... It's so simple.... I'm such an idiot!!!!"  and then run to their desk.
