Python write a list to multiple columns in excel

0 votes

I'm attempting to create numerous columns in Excel. I have a list that looks like this.

list1=[1,2,3,4,5]

the other list will be like

list2=['a','b','c']

I can't make a dataframe in pandas and write it since I will have several varied sized(length) lists.

list3=['1a','2b','3c','4d']

I want it in excel be like

enter image description here

I am not sure which framework to use, openpyxl or pandas which will solve this issue

I have used your suggestion in this way;

with pd.ExcelWriter(var_path, engine='openpyxl', mode='r+', if_sheet_exists='overlay') as writer:
    book = load_workbook(var_path)
    current_sheet = book[var_sheetname]
    Column_H = current_sheet['H']
    try:
        maxrow = max(c.row for c in Column_H if c.value is not None)
    except ValueError:
        maxrow = 1

    print(var_sheetname,maxrow,'writing docs')
    var_inp.to_excel(writer,startrow=maxrow,columns=Column_H,sheet_name=var_sheetname,index=False,header=False

Make a nested list :

L = [list1, list2, list3]

Then you can use Worksheet.append :

from openpyxl import Workbook

wb = Workbook()
ws = wb.active

for sub_list in L:
    ws.append(sub_list)

wb.save("book1.xlsx")
    

Or with pandas :

import pandas as pd

pd.DataFrame(L).to_excel("book2.xlsx", header=False, index=False)

Output (spreadsheet) :
