To me, you need to make a join between your main shapefile that contains the common names only with the CSV file. I would do that this way: Load your CSV file into your QGIS project (Layer > Add layer > Add delimited text layer) and specify that field delimitations are semi-colons and that it is a non-geometric layer. Make a join between your shapefile and ...

Because of that it's looking for COTS_234AR.csv and not M:\GIS\FinalExam\COTS_234AR.csv (or whatever your workspace path is). You need to pass input as a full path to the csv, not just the csv name. import os # Add os to your imports for csv in csvs: #set ...

I personal avoid using Excel like the plague and get my data into personal geodatabase which is essentially a spatial enabled Access database. Much easier to read and write from and you ...

Be sure of the type of your columns (date sometimes crash) and their names (no space, no special characters). It could also be the encoding (make a try with UTF8.) or your csv delimiter.

Have you tried using Notepad as an in-between-step? After creating your excel file, copy everything in a notepad file, then choose "save as". Make sure that you change the type of file as "All files", then the name of your file must be prompted like "name.csv".
