Workbook fails on empty cells.

Issue #133 closed
Former user created an issue

Kept getting the following bug:



In [4]: load_workbook('faculty360.xlsx')

TypeError Traceback (most recent call last)

<ipython console> in <module>()

/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/openpyxl-1.5.8-py2.6.egg/openpyxl/reader/excel.pyc in load_workbook(filename, use_iterators) 93 94 try: ---> 95 _load_workbook(wb, archive, filename, use_iterators) 96 except KeyError, e: 97 raise InvalidFileException(unicode(e))

TypeError: argument of type 'NoneType' is not iterable


This had a very quick fix of changing line 117 of /usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/openpyxl-1.5.8-py2.6.egg/openpyxl/reader/ to:

{{{ if hasattr(name_node, 'text') or bad_range in name_node.text: }}}

and then the xlsx reader loads with no issues. I can't share the particular file that was causing the error (and not sure how my colleague generated it).

    Sorry the fix should have been:

                    if name_node.text is None or bad_range in name_node.text:
                        valid = False
