How to add column filters to Excel worksheet using XLWINGS

0 votes
My Python method for generating an Excel sheet is almost complete. One of the last things to do is to add a filtering option to the sheet's top row (using the Excel shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+L). No filtering should be done; just add the filter. Although I can open the file and complete the task manually, it would be wonderful if it could be automated.

Is it possible?

Call the API property to activate the autofilter:

import xlwings as xw

path = r"test.xlsx"

wb = xw.Book(path)
ws = wb.sheets[0]

ws.used_range.api.AutoFilter(Field:=1)

 You can also use native xlwings functions (create a table object and then set its show_autofilter to True):

import xlwings as xw

path = r"test.xlsx"

wb = xw.Book(path)
ws = wb.sheets[0]

ws.tables.add(ws.used_range, name="a_table")
ws.tables["a_table"].show_autofilter = True
# This way adds formatting in addition to the filter.
