Hi ChrisAngelico,

Consider that source and destination directories are given in a .xls(excel) 

This is the code

import xlrd, sys, subprocess
file_location = "C:\Users\salingeg\Desktop\input.xls"
workbook = xlrd.open_workbook(file_location)
sheet = workbook.sheet_by_index(0)
sheet.cell_value(0, 0)
for row in range(sheet.nrows):
            values = []
            values.append(sheet.cell_value(row, 1))
            destination = []
            destination.append(sheet.cell_value(row, 2))
            for s in values:
                        for d in destination:
If I am using cp or xcopy command, it will copy all files from s to d.
shutil.copy(s, d) can't be used here because it overwrites files in d. Kindly
