Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment


I have an Excel file with a lot of data in it . i would like to get the info like in a dictionary example the first column of the excel will be the key and the rest of the column will be the values

No name lastname hobby
1  jhon g        fishing
2  mike a        boxing
3  tom  v        sking

is it possible to have it like

dict = {No:1, name:jhon, lastname:g, hobby:fishing},
dict = {No:2, name:mike, lastname:a, hobby:boxing},

i tried converting the excel to csv and tried csv.DictReader it did not work for me is there any other way

{'hobby': 'boxing', 'lastname': 'a', 'name': 'mike', 'No': '2'}
{'hobby': 'sking', 'lastname': 'v', 'name': 'tom', 'No': '3'}
