Beginners Guide to Read and Write data in Azure Databricks

1. Provision the Resources Required

# File location and type
file_location = “/FileStore/tables/Country_Sales_Records.csv”
file_type = “csv”

# CSV options
infer_schema = “false”
first_row_is_header = “false”
delimiter = “,”

# The applied options are for CSV files. For other file types, these will be ignored.
df = \
.option(“inferSchema”, infer_schema) \
.option(“header”, first_row_is_header) \
.option(“sep”, delimiter) \


# CSV options
infer_schema = “true”
first_row_is_header = “true”

Create a table and query the data using SQL

# Create a view or table
tblCountrtySales = “Country_Sales”

select * from `Country_Sales`
