xlrd is a library for reading data and formatting information from Excel files in the historical .xls format.

.. warning::

This library will no longer read anything other than .xls files. For alternatives that read newer file formats, please see http://www.python-excel.org/.

The following are also not supported but will safely and reliably be ignored:

  • Charts, Macros, Pictures, any other embedded object, including embedded worksheets.
  • VBA modules
  • Formulas, but results of formula calculations are extracted.
  • Comments
  • Hyperlinks
  • Autofilters, advanced filters, pivot tables, conditional formatting, data validation

Password-protected files are not supported and cannot be read by this library.

Quick start:

.. code-block:: bash

pip install xlrd

.. code-block:: python

import xlrd
book = xlrd.open_workbook("myfile.xls")
print("The number of worksheets is {0}".format(book.nsheets))
print("Worksheet name(s): {0}".format(book.sheet_names()))
sh = book.sheet_by_index(0)
print("{0} {1} {2}".format(sh.name, sh.nrows, sh.ncols))
print("Cell D30 is {0}".format(sh.cell_value(rowx=29, colx=3)))
for rx in range(sh.nrows):

From the command line, this will show the first, second and last rows of each sheet in each file:

.. code-block:: bash

python PYDIR/scripts/runxlrd.py 3rows *blah*.xls
