Hi @Sky01,

Basically, you want to create a list from a dictionary, is that correct? Now, do you want to merge all keys and values of your dictionary into a list or create two separate lists, one for your keys and one for your values?

Let’s say you want to create one list containing both the key and values of your dictionary:

for key, value in dict.iteritems():
    temp = [key,value]
    dictlist.append(temp)

If you want to create different lists for both your key and your value, you can try :

# Create a list of keys
list(dict.keys())

# Create a list of values
list(dict.values())
