A Python library to read/write Excel 2010 xlsx/xlsm files
openpyxl is a Python library to read/write Excel 2010 xlsx/xlsm/xltx/xltm files.
It was born from lack of existing library to read/write natively from Python the Office Open XML format.
All kudos to the PHPExcel team as openpyxl was initially based on PHPExcel
