Python | Reading an excel file using openpyxl module

Openpyxl is a Python library for reading and writing Excel (with extension xlsx/xlsm/xltx/xltm) files. The openpyxl module allows Python program to read and modify Excel files.

For example, user might have to go through thousands of rows and pick out few handful information to make small changes based on some criteria. Using Openpyxl module, these tasks can be done very efficiently and easily.

Use this command to install openpyxl module :

sudo pip3 install openpyxl 

 

Input file :



Code #1 : Program to print the particular cell value

# Python program to read an excel file
  
# import openpyxl module
import openpyxl
  
# Give the location of the file
path = "C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\demo.xlsx"
  
# To open the workbook 
# workbook object is created
wb_obj = openpyxl.load_workbook(path)
  
# Get workbook active sheet object
# from the active attribute
sheet_obj = wb_obj.active
  
# Cell objects also have row, column, 
# and coordinate attributes that provide
# location information for the cell.
  
# Note: The first row or 
# column integer is 1, not 0.
  
# Cell object is created by using 
# sheet object's cell() method.
cell_obj = sheet_obj.cell(row = 1, column = 1)
  
# Print value of cell object 
# using the value attribute
print(cell_obj.value)

/div>

Output :

STUDENT 'S NAME

 
Code #2 : Determine total number of rows

# import openpyxl module
import openpyxl
  
# Give the location of the file
path = "C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\demo.xlsx"
  
# to open the workbook 
# workbook object is created
wb_obj = openpyxl.load_workbook(path)
sheet_obj = wb_obj.active
  
# print the total number of rows
print(sheet_obj.max_row)

Output :

6

 
Code #3 : Determine total number of columns

# importing openpyxl module
import openpyxl
  
# Give the location of the file
path = "C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\demo.xlsx"
  
# workbook object is created
wb_obj = openpyxl.load_workbook(path)
  
sheet_obj = wb_obj.active
  
# ptint total number of column 
print(sheet_obj.max_column)

Output :

4

 
Code #4 : Print all columns name

# importing openpyxl module
import openpyxl
  
# Give the location of the file
path = "C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\demo.xlsx"
  
# workbook object is created
wb_obj = openpyxl.load_workbook(path)
  
sheet_obj = wb_obj.active
max_col = sheet_obj.max_column
  
# Loop will print all columns name
for i in range(1, max_col + 1):
    cell_obj = sheet_obj.cell(row = 1, column = i)
    print(cell_obj.value)

Output :

STUDENT 'S NAME
COURSE
BRANCH
SEMESTER

 
Code #5 : Print first column value

# importing openpyxl module
import openpyxl
  
# Give the location of the file
path = "C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\demo.xlsx"
  
# workbook object is created
wb_obj = openpyxl.load_workbook(path)
  
sheet_obj = wb_obj.active
m_row = sheet_obj.max_row
  
# Loop will print all values
# of first column 
for i in range(1, m_row + 1):
    cell_obj = sheet_obj.cell(row = i, column = 1)
    print(cell_obj.value)

Output :

STUDENT 'S NAME

sheet_obj = wb_obj.active
  
max_col = sheet_obj.max_column
  
# Will print a particular row value
for i in range(1, max_col + 1):
    cell_obj = sheet_obj.cell(row = 2, column = i)
    print(cell_obj.value, end = " ")
