Problem with module xlsxwriter

0 votes
I recently downloaded the xlsxwriter version 0.6.4 and installed it on my computer. It correctly added it to my C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\xlsxwriter folder, however when I try to import it I get the error ImportError: No module named xlsxwriter. The traceback is File "F:\Working\ArcGIS\ArcGIS .py\Scripts\Append_Geodatabase.py".

However if I try to import numpy (I can't remember what numby is, however it is located in the same site-packages folder C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\numpy) it has no problem.

Any idea of what could be causing this issue?

Thanks for the help

Even if it looks like the module is installed, as far as Python is concerned it isn't since it throw that exception.

Try installing the module again using one of the installation methods shown in the XlsxWriter docsand look out for any installation errors.

If there are none then run a sample program like the following:

import xlsxwriter

workbook = xlsxwriter.Workbook('hello.xlsx')
worksheet = workbook.add_worksheet()

worksheet.write('A1', 'Hello world')

workbook.close()
