Hi,

This question is related to a previous question that was excellently answered:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Python/Q_21905315.html



What I now would like to do is to create a list of the following structure:
[GarageName*Make-Model , GarageName*Make-Model , GarageName*Make-Model ...... ]

I have no problem making a list of the following structure:
[[GarageName, Make, Model] , [GarageName, Make, Model] , [GarageName, Make, Model] .....]


, but I need the cars to be in the first list format, as this is the format that they appear in another inventory.

So I need to use some kind of string function that will convert the object values to a string??


Hope you can help,
John

How about this:

LIST = [["wood road", "toyota", "yaris"], ["john street", "ford", "mondeo"]]
result = ["%s*%s-%s" % (garage, make, model) for garage, make, model in LIST]
print result
