Build Status PyPI version PyPI license PyPI pyversions

Save pyexcel data with XlsxWriter, while retaining good formatting.


  • Allow setting column widths and word wrap.
  • A package for reading data is not included, please see pyexcel's plugins here.


$ pip install pyexcel-xlsxwx


>>> import pyexcel_xlsxwx
>>> data = OrderedDict() # from collections import OrderedDict
>>> data.update({"Sheet 1": [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]]})
>>> data.update({"Sheet 2": [["row 1", "row 2", "row 3"]]})
>>> pyexcel_xlsxwx.save_data("your_file.xlsx", data)

You can also define a custom config via:

>>> pyexcel_xlsxwx.save_data("your_file.xlsx", data, config=config)

Where config can be dictionary or path to YAML file.

The default YAML config is:

  constant_memory: true
  strings_to_numbers: false
  strings_to_formulas: false
  strings_to_urls: true
    freeze_panes: A2
#    column_width: 30
    smart_fit: true
    max_column_width: 30
    valign: top
    text_wrap: true

column_width can also accept a list and a dictionary where key indicates the column.

row_height can also be set the same way.

To cancel out freeze_panes, try:

>>> pyexcel_xlsxwx.save_data("your_file.xlsx", data, config={'worksheet': {'_default': {'freeze_panes': None}}})

The settings will merge (thanks to, so that the other formattings won't be lost.

  • pyexcel-openpyxlx - export the styles for XlsxWriter.
  • pyexcel-export - operates using OpenPyXL, which seeming has bad word wrap support. However, the formatting can be well preserved.
