Pyooxml is a Python interface for working with OOXML files such as xlsx, docx, pptx.
For now only reading xlsx works.
Here's how to use it to read xlsx file:
>>> from ooxml.spreadsheet import Spreadsheet >>> workbook=Spreadsheet('book1.xlsx') #read in book1.xlsx >>> workbook.sheet_names ['Sheet1', 'Sheet3', 'Sheet2'] >>> sheet1 = workbook.sheet(1) #index start from 1, not 0 >>> row1 = sheet1.row(1) #you can get a row >>> row1 <spreadsheet.Workrow object at 0xb7a8898c> >>> row1.cell(1).value #access a cell value in a row '1' >>> sheet1.cell(2,1).value #access by sheet.cell(x,y), x is row, y is column '2' >>> sheet2 = workbook.sheet('Sheet2') #use name instead of index to get a sheet >>> cell = sheet2.cell(5,5) >>> workbook.save_csv('my.csv') #save content to csv
Writing xlsx, reading/writing docx, pptx will be added later.
