I'm probably using poor search terms when trying to find this answer. Right now, before indexing a DataFrame, I'm getting a list of values in a column this way...
list = list(df['column'])
...then I'll set_index on the column. This seems like a wasted step. When trying the above on an index, I get a key error.
How can I grab the values in an index (both single and multi) and put them in a list or a list of tuples?
