Questions:

does anyone know how to count the number of rows on an Excel worksheet using xlsxwriter? I have looked for a method similar to XLRD’s worksheet.nrows in xlsxwriter but have not been able to find one. I had orginally tried to use both xlsxwriter and xlrd in a script but I have errors due to what I think is a problem with both xlsxwriter and xlrd trying to open the same file at the same time. I can attach the code if that would help. Thank you very much in advance!

How to&Answers:

xlsxwriter does not support reading from a workbook. It is designed to create excel workbooks.

From their site: https://xlsxwriter.readthedocs.org/en/latest/introduction.html

It cannot read or modify existing Excel XLSX files.
