Read and write xlsx/xlst using pandas/openpyxl while preserving Excel formatting

Project description


Read and write Excel xlsx using pandas/openpyxl without destroying formatting.

Sometimes you have a nicely formatted worksheet, but you'd like to work with it using pandas, or perhaps you want to write data to an Excel template.

Pandas can read and write Excel files using xlrd, but treats them like csvs. xlPandas uses openpyxl to access data while preserving template formatting, macros, and other worksheet attributes.


pip install xlpandas


import xlpandas as xpd

# Read excel file
df = xpd.read_file('template.xlsx', skiprows=2)

# Modify dataframe
df['new_column'] = True

# Access openpyxl worksheet
sheet = df.to_sheet()
sheet.cell(1,1).value = 'title'

# From openpyxl worksheet
df = xpd.xlDataFrame(sheet)

# Write file
