I have a dataframe as below

      itm Date               Amount 

67 420 2012-09-30 00:00:00 65211 

68 421 2012-09-09 00:00:00 29424 

69 421 2012-09-16 00:00:00 29877 

70 421 2012-09-23 00:00:00 30990 

71 421 2012-09-30 00:00:00 61303 

72 485 2012-09-09 00:00:00 71781 

73 485 2012-09-16 00:00:00 NaN 

74 485 2012-09-23 00:00:00 11072 

75 485 2012-09-30 00:00:00 113702 

76 489 2012-09-09 00:00:00 64731 

77 489 2012-09-16 00:00:00 NaN

when I try to .apply a function to the Amount column I get the following error.

ValueError: cannot convert float NaN to integer

I have tried applying a function using .isnan from the Math Module I have tried the pandas .replace attribute I tried the .sparse data attribute from pandas 0.9 I have also tried if NaN == NaN statement in a function. I have also looked at this article How do I replace NA values with zeros in an R dataframe? whilst looking at some other articles. All the methods I have tried have not worked or do not recognize NaN. Any Hints or solutions would be appreciated.

You can use DataFrame.fillna() method for this problem. This function fills the null value with the given value in the dataframe. 

For example:

In [12]: df[1].fillna(0, inplace=True) 

Out[12]:

0    0.000000 

1    0.570994 

2    0.000000 

3   -0.229738 

4    0.000000 

Name: 1 

In [13]: df 

Out[13]: 

     0               1 

0   NaN           0.000000 

1  -0.494375   0.570994 

2   NaN           0.000000 

3   1.876360  -0.229738 

4   NaN           0.000000
