Adding to dictionary

Recommended Posts

I see many examples o dictionary used but I cannot find any that adds to an existing dictionary

	a = dict()
	a['fgh']=123
	a['ghi'] = 345
	

Yields the error

    a['ghi']=345
TypeError: 'str' object does not support item assignment

Is it only possible to build it once and not add to it??

That code should run without error, as you can see in the documentation: https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/datastructures.html#dictionaries

Is that all of the code? There might be something you're not showing that is interfering.
