I am trying to write a string in a cell within an excel file. My code is
import xlwt import xlrd workbook = xlrd.open_workbook('my_workbook.xls') worksheet = workbook.sheet_by_index(0) worksheet.write(0,2,"string")
While I was looking for a solution I leardned that it could be becouse my xlwt library has an old version. However when I checkied it I got xlwt: 0.7.5. And I was once again left clueless. Any help is appreciated.
After Looking into the problem I found a solution using the
xlwt library to write the data on a virtual workbook and the
xlutils library to save it and thus make the virtual workbook into an actual .xls file.
import xlrd import xlwt from xlutils.copy import copy import os.path rb = xlrd.open_workbook('my_workbook.xls',formatting_info=True) r_sheet = rb.sheet_by_index(0) wb = copy(rb) sheet = wb.get_sheet(0) sheet.write(5,2,"string") wb.save('my_workbook.xls')
