Python - how to read contents of an excel file

0 votes
xlapp = Dispatch("Excel.Application")
wkbk = xlapp.Workbooks.Open(filename)

This procedure is used to read an excel file, however, I'm unable to access the content. Can somebody give me some advice on how to manage this better?

xlwings is an excellent library to interact with Excel files from Python.

Opening, reading, and writing to Workbooks are as easy as:

>>> from xlwings import Workbook, Sheet, Range, Chart
>>> wb = Workbook()  # Creates a connection with a new workbook
>>> Range('A1').value = 'Foo 1'
>>> Range('A1').value
'Foo 1'

You can install it using:

$ pip install xlwings
