Snowflake Connector for Python: Empty results of fetch_arrow and fetch_pandas are typed¶
This behavior change is not part of the 2022_07 bundle in the 6.32 release, and can only be tested once the specified version of the Snowflake Connector for Python has been released.
For the most up-to-date details about the change, as well as other release-related details, refer to the Behavior Change Log.
Currently, if the
fetch_pandas Python functions return empty results, the empty columns are returned
as generic Objects. They do not have a specific data type.
In a future version of the connector, the behavior of these functions will change as follows:
fetch_pandasreturn empty results, the schema columns of the results have a generic Object type.
fetch_pandasreturn empty results, the schema columns returned will be assigned the same data type as the column.
This change will be made in version 2.8.0 of the Snowflake Connector for Python. When this version of the connector is available, you should verify these changes in a test environment before upgrading your production environment. Ref: 215
