Hi All, Too many people in the Python community think the only way to work with Excel files in Python is using COM on Windows.
To try and correct this, I'm giving a tutorial at this year's PyCon in Chicago on Wednesday, 25th March that will cover working with Excel files in Python using the pure-python libraries xlrd, xlwt and xlutils. I'll be looking to cover: - Reading Excel Files Including formatting, unicode dates and formulae. - Writing Excel Files Including formatting with easyxf and things like freeze pains, print areas, etc - Filtering Excel Files A run through on the structure of xlutils.filter and some examples to show you how it works. - Workshop for your problems I'm hoping anyone who attends will get a lot out of this! If you're planning on attending and have a particular problem you'd like to work on in this part of the tutorial, please drop me an email and I'll try and make sure I come prepared! All you need for the tutorial is a working knowledge of Excel and Python, with a laptop as an added benefit, and to be at PyCon this year: http://us.pycon.org I look forward to seeing you all there!
