Xls to csv converter

0 votes

My.xlsx and.xls files are being converted to.csv using win32.client in Python. This code is giving me an error when I run it. My code is:

def convertXLS2CSV(aFile):
    '''converts a MS Excel file to csv w/ the same name in the same directory'''

    print "------ beginning to convert XLS to CSV ------"

    try:
        import win32com.client, os
        from win32com.client import constants as c
        excel = win32com.client.Dispatch('Excel.Application')

        fileDir, fileName = os.path.split(aFile)
        nameOnly = os.path.splitext(fileName)
        newName = nameOnly[0] + ".csv"
        outCSV = os.path.join(fileDir, newName)
        workbook = excel.Workbooks.Open(aFile)
        workbook.SaveAs(outCSV, c.xlCSVMSDOS) # 24 represents xlCSVMSDOS
        workbook.Close(False)
        excel.Quit()
        del excel

        print "...Converted " + nameOnly + " to CSV"
    except:
        print ">>>>>>> FAILED to convert " + aFile + " to CSV!"

convertXLS2CSV("G:\\hello.xlsx")

I am not able to find the error in this code. Please help.

Use xlrd - it's faster, cross-platform, and works directly with the file.

As of version 0.8.0, xlrd reads both XLS and XLSX files.

But as of version 2.0.0, support was reduced back to only XLS.

import xlrd
import csv

def csv_from_excel():
    wb = xlrd.open_workbook('your_workbook.xls')
    sh = wb.sheet_by_name('Sheet1')
    your_csv_file = open('your_csv_file.csv', 'wb')
    wr = csv.writer(your_csv_file, quoting=csv.QUOTE_ALL)

    for rownum in xrange(sh.nrows):
        wr.writerow(sh.row_values(rownum))

    your_csv_file.close()
