You cited this problem of confidentiality in your last post too.

Clearly no-one is expecting you to show personal data.

But the solution is easy. Fake an example with invented data and then
show us your code.

Some posts come close to a limiting case "Code I am not showing you on
data I am not showing you is not doing what I want. Anyone know why?".
It's important to lift yourself clear of that!
