Excel 2007-2010 Binary Workbook (xlsb) parser
pyxlsb is an Excel 2007-2010 Binary Workbook (xlsb) parser for Python. The library is currently extremely limited, but functional enough for basic data extraction.
pip install pyxlsb
The module exposes an open_workbook(name) method (similar to Xlrd and OpenPyXl) for opening XLSB files. The Workbook object representing the file is returned.
from pyxlsb import open_workbook with open_workbook('Book1.xlsb') as wb: # Do stuff with wb
The Workbook object exposes a get_sheet(idx) method for retrieving a Worksheet instance.
# Using the sheet index (1-based) with wb.get_sheet(1) as sheet: # Do stuff with sheet # Using the sheet name with wb.get_sheet('Sheet1') as sheet: # Do stuff with sheet
Tip: A sheets property containing the sheet names is available on the Workbook instance.
The rows() method will hand out an iterator to read the worksheet rows.
# You can use .rows(sparse=True) to skip empty rows for row in sheet.rows(): print(row) # [Cell(r=0, c=0, v='TEXT'), Cell(r=0, c=1, v=42.1337)]
Do note that dates will appear as floats. You must use the convert_date(date) method from the pyxlsb module to turn them into datetime instances.
from pyxlsb import convert_date print(convert_date(41235.45578)) # datetime.datetime(2012, 11, 22, 10, 56, 19)
