This package provides a collection of utilities for working with Excel files. Since these utilities may require either or both of the xlrd and xlwt packages, they are collected together here, separate from either package.

Please read this before using this package: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/python-excel/P6TjJgFVjMI/g8d0eWxTBQAJ

Currently available are:

Tools for copying xlrd.Book objects to xlwt.Workbook objects.
Utility functions for displaying information about xlrd-related objects in a user-friendly and safe fashion.
A mini framework for splitting and filtering Excel files into new Excel files.
Tools for finding how much of an Excel file contains useful data.
Tools for serializing xlrd.Book objects back to Excel files.
Tools for working with formatting information expressed in styles.


Do the following in your virtualenv:

pip install xlutils
