TypeError: __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'extLst'

Issue #928 resolved
created an issue

Hey Charlie,

Openpyxl 2.5.0b1 now works fine for Excel workbooks with only one pivot table. I noticed that if a workbook contains multiple pivot tables, it will get the error below. Please let me know if you have the same issue. Thanks!

    Thanks for the report. Multiple pivot tables are supported: I tested with files that contain hundreds. The problem here is that something contains a post-specification extension from Microsoft. openpyxl currently handles this by ignoring such extensions but they are initially passed into the classes constructor as keywords. Easy to fix with a sample file.

    Hi Charlie,

    Thanks for the quick reply. Attached are two excel files. The excel file destination.xlsx has two worksheets each with a pivot table - 'By Placement' and 'Error Check'. Please let me know how I could fix this to handle multiple pivot tables. Below is the code. Thank you very much.

    import pandas as pd
    from datetime import datetime
    import openpyxl
    df = pd.read_excel('dataframe.xlsx', 'Sheet1')
    destination = 'destination.xlsx'
    wb = openpyxl.load_workbook(destination)
    writer = pd.ExcelWriter(destination, engine='openpyxl') 
    writer.book = wb
    writer.sheets = dict((ws.title, ws) for ws in wb.worksheets)
    df.to_excel(writer, 'Spotlight Report', startrow=4, startcol=0, header=False, index=False)
    ext = datetime.now().strftime('%m.%d.%y_%Hh%Mm%Ss')
    wb.save('RESULT ' + ext + '.xlsx')

    Should work fine with a checkout. And, of course, I suggest you use from openpyxl.utils.dataframe import dataframe_to_rows for fine-grained control.

    Hey Charlie. I have been working to resolve this for about a week now and I genuinely cannot figure this out. I tried different ways on adding a keyword parameter for extLst but nothing works. I also can't find the commit that fixes the problem that you were referring to. Any further help/advise is sincerely appreciated. Thanks!
