How to Automate Excel with Python | Python Excel Tutorial (OpenPyXL)

How to Automate Excel with Python

In this article, We will show how we can use python to automate Excel . A useful Python library is Openpyxl which we will learn to do Excel Automation


Openpyxl is a Python library that is used to read from an Excel file or write to an Excel file. Data scientists use Openpyxl for data analysis, data copying, data mining, drawing charts, styling sheets, adding formulas, and more.

Workbook: A spreadsheet is represented as a workbook in openpyxl. A workbook consists of one or more sheets.

Sheet: A sheet is a single page composed of cells for organizing data.

Cell: The intersection of a row and a column is called a cell. Usually represented by A1, B5, etc.

Row: A row is a horizontal line represented by a number (1,2, etc.).

Column: A column is a vertical line represented by a capital letter (A, B, etc.).

Openpyxl can be installed using the pip command and it is recommended to install it in a virtual environment.

pip install openpyxl


We start by creating a new spreadsheet, which is called a workbook in Openpyxl. We import the workbook module from Openpyxl and use the function Workbook() which creates a new workbook.

from openpyxl
import Workbook
#creates a new workbook
wb = Workbook()
#Gets the first active worksheet
ws =
#creating new worksheets by using the create_sheet method

ws1 = wb.create_sheet("sheet1", 0) #inserts at first position
ws2 = wb.create_sheet("sheet2") #inserts at last position
ws3 = wb.create_sheet("sheet3", -1) #inserts at penultimate position

#Renaming the sheet
ws.title = "Example"

#save the workbook = "example.xlsx")


We load the file using the function load_Workbook() which takes the filename as an argument. The file must be saved in the same working directory.

#loading a workbook
wb = openpyxl.load_workbook("example.xlsx")




#getting sheet names
result = ['sheet1', 'Sheet', 'sheet3', 'sheet2']

#getting a particular sheet
sheet1 = wb["sheet2"]

#getting sheet title
result = 'sheet2'

#Getting the active sheet
sheetactive =
result = 'sheet1'




#get a cell from the sheet
sheet1["A1"] <
  Cell 'Sheet1'.A1 >

  #get the cell value
ws["A1"].value 'Segment'

#accessing cell using row and column and assigning a value
d = ws.cell(row = 4, column = 2, value = 10)




#looping through each row and column
for x in range(1, 5):
  for y in range(1, 5):
  print(x, y, ws.cell(row = x, column = y)

#getting the highest row number

#getting the highest column number

There are two functions for iterating through rows and columns.

Iter_rows() => returns the rows
Iter_cols() => returns the columns {
  min_row = 4, max_row = 5, min_col = 2, max_col = 5
} => This can be used to set the boundaries
for any iteration.


#iterating rows
for row in ws.iter_rows(min_row = 2, max_col = 3, max_row = 3):
  for cell in row:
  print(cell) <
  Cell 'Sheet1'.A2 >
  Cell 'Sheet1'.B2 >
  Cell 'Sheet1'.C2 >
  Cell 'Sheet1'.A3 >
  Cell 'Sheet1'.B3 >
  Cell 'Sheet1'.C3 >

  #iterating columns
for col in ws.iter_cols(min_row = 2, max_col = 3, max_row = 3):
  for cell in col:
  print(cell) <
  Cell 'Sheet1'.A2 >
  Cell 'Sheet1'.A3 >
  Cell 'Sheet1'.B2 >
  Cell 'Sheet1'.B3 >
  Cell 'Sheet1'.C2 >
  Cell 'Sheet1'.C3 >

To get all the rows of the worksheet we use the method worksheet.rows and to get all the columns of the worksheet we use the method worksheet.columns. Similarly, to iterate only through the values we use the method worksheet.values.


for row in ws.values:
  for value in row:



Writing to a workbook can be done in many ways such as adding a formula, adding charts, images, updating cell values, inserting rows and columns, etc… We will discuss each of these with an example.




#creates a new workbook
wb = openpyxl.Workbook()

#saving the workbook"new.xlsx")




#creating a new sheet
ws1 = wb.create_sheet(title = "sheet 2")

#creating a new sheet at index 0
ws2 = wb.create_sheet(index = 0, title = "sheet 0")

#checking the sheet names
wb.sheetnames['sheet 0', 'Sheet', 'sheet 2']

#deleting a sheet
del wb['sheet 0']

#checking sheetnames
wb.sheetnames['Sheet', 'sheet 2']




#checking the sheet value

#adding value to cell
ws['B2'] = 367

#checking value




We often require formulas to be included in our Excel datasheet. We can easily add formulas using the Openpyxl module just like you add values to a cell.

For example:

import openpyxl
from openpyxl
import Workbook

wb = openpyxl.load_workbook("new1.xlsx")
ws = wb['Sheet']

ws['A9'] = '=SUM(A2:A8)'"new2.xlsx")

The above program will add the formula (=SUM(A2:A8)) in cell A9. The result will be as below.




Two or more cells can be merged to a rectangular area using the method merge_cells(), and similarly, they can be unmerged using the method unmerge_cells().

For example:
Merge cells

#merge cells B2 to C9
ws['B2'] = "Merged cells"

Adding the above code to the previous example will merge cells as below.




#unmerge cells B2 to C9

The above code will unmerge cells from B2 to C9.


To insert an image we import the image function from the module openpyxl.drawing.image. We then load our image and add it to the cell as shown in the below example.


import openpyxl
from openpyxl
import Workbook
from openpyxl.drawing.image
import Image

wb = openpyxl.load_workbook("new1.xlsx")
ws = wb['Sheet']
#loading the image(should be in same folder)
img = Image('logo.png')
ws['A1'] = "Adding image"
#adjusting size
img.height = 130
img.width = 200
#adding img to cell A3

ws.add_image(img, 'A3')"new2.xlsx")




Charts are essential to show a visualization of data. We can create charts from Excel data using the Openpyxl module chart. Different forms of charts such as line charts, bar charts, 3D line charts, etc., can be created. We need to create a reference that contains the data to be used for the chart, which is nothing but a selection of cells (rows and columns). I am using sample data to create a 3D bar chart in the below example:


import openpyxl
from openpyxl
import Workbook
from openpyxl.chart
import BarChart3D, Reference, series

wb = openpyxl.load_workbook("example.xlsx")
ws =

values = Reference(ws, min_col = 3, min_row = 2, max_col = 3, max_row = 40)
chart = BarChart3D()
ws.add_chart(chart, "E3")"MyChart.xlsx")

Uber’s Success Is Deeply Tied To Its Success In India: Shirish Andhare

India is currently in a vital phase of its infrastructure, energy, and mobility development, which nicely sets the stage to leapfrog current or existing practices. According to sources, an estimated 40% of its population will be living in urban areas by 2025, and they will account for over 60% of the consumption of resources.

Moreover, transportation in India is highly fragmented, disorganised across modes with poor infrastructure, congestion and low public transport density. Riders and drivers have to undertake multiple challenges daily such as lack of availability, reliability, quality, consistent pricing, safety etc.

To know more about the current space and transportation in India, Analytics India Magazine caught up with Shirish Andhare, Director, Program Management, Uber India and South Asia.

“Our goal is to change the Indian mindset and help people replace their car with their phone by offering a range of mobility options — whether cars, bikes, autos or public transport — all in the Uber app. By putting more people in fewer cars, we have the potential to build smarter and more liveable cities,” said Andhare.

Using technology, Uber India has been trying to transform the mobility landscape and change how people move around in the country by playing a transformational role in addressing pain points for riders and adding efficiency into the system.

With its multi-modal vision for mobility in India, Uber wants to make a variety of options available to help commuters get where they want to go at a price point that works for them. To that end, Uber has announced partnerships across airports and Metros in Delhi and Hyderabad to provide last-mile connectivity.

Transformation of Uber India

Andhare said that about seven years ago, Uber launched in Bangalore with just three employees. Today, Uber India has tech teams across Bangalore and Hyderabad. It continues its exponential growth journey, focusing on facilitating affordable, reliable and convenient transportation to millions of riders and livelihood opportunities for hundreds of thousands of driver-partners.

The company has doubled its engineering team in India this year. The R&D teams located in Hyderabad and Bangalore continue to grow and currently host over a dozen global charters including rider, maps, customer obsession, infrastructure, money, and eats. These teams are driving global impact for Uber based on several India-first product innovations.

Andhare said, “With over a billion trips in India and South Asia and counting, along with a large driver-partner base, we are focused on winning hearts and minds in the market. We plan to do this by doubling down on products that can solve for low network connectivity, congestion and pollution, as well as enable multiple price points with a varied set of offerings. Uber’s success is deeply tied to our success in India, we are in a strong position in India, and we are committed to serving the market.”

He added, “As we gear up to deliver the next billion rides in the region, we remain focused on providing convenient, affordable rides to millions of riders and stable and sustainable earning opportunities to driver-partners.”

Deep Tech At Uber

Andhare stated that technology provides an incredible opportunity to improve road safety in new and innovative ways before, during and after every ride. At every step, Uber is maximising the usage of technology to bring transparency and accountability through features such as two-way feedback and ratings, telematics and GPS, among others. These will have a positive impact on furthering trust and empathy between riders and driver-partners.

Uber’s Engineering Centre in Bangalore and Hyderabad are engaged in cutting-edge basic and applied technology solutions in areas that include rider growth, driver growth, digital payments, mapping, telematics, vehicle tracking/safety and fleet management, and the Uber core experience.

Some of the India-first innovations include the in-app emergency feature, arrears handling, driver inbound phone support, cash trips, Uber Rentals for longer trips and UberGO. The company is investing heavily in research and resources.

Some of the technologies used at Uber include computer vision, automation, Machine Learning(ML), Optical character recognition (OCR), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques, NLP etc. These technologies are used in areas such as onboarding restaurant menus onto Uber marketplace, enabling earnings opportunities and more. It is also crucial to perform other tasks such as better routing, matching, fraud detection, document processing, maps editing, machine translations, customer support, and more.

Twitter.jl: Julia Package to Access Twitter API


A Julia package for interacting with the Twitter API.

Twitter.jl is a Julia package to work with the Twitter API v1.1. Currently, only the REST API methods are supported; streaming API endpoints aren't implemented at this time.

All functions have required arguments for those parameters required by Twitter and an options keyword argument to provide a Dict{String, String} of optional parameters Twitter API documentation. Most function calls will return either a Dict or an Array <: TwitterType. Bad requests will return the response code from the API (403, 404, etc).

DataFrame methods are defined for functions returning composite types: Tweets, Places, Lists, and Users.


Before one can make use of this package, you must create an application on the Twitter's Developer Platform.

Once your application is approved, you can access your dashboard/portal to grab your authentication credentials from the "Details" tab of the application.

Note that you will also want to ensure that your App has Read / Write OAuth access in order to post tweets. You can find out more about this on Stack Overflow.


To install this package, enter ] on the REPL to bring up Julia's package manager. Then add the package:

julia> ]
(v1.7) pkg> add Twitter

Tip: Press Ctrl+C to return to the julia> prompt.


To run Twitter.jl, enter the following command in your Julia REPL

julia> using Twitter

Then the a global variable has to be declared with the twitterauth function. This function holds the consumer_key(API Key), consumer_secret(API Key Secret), oauth_token(Access Token), and oauth_secret(Access Token Secret) respectively.

twitterauth("6nOtpXmf...", # API Key
            "sES5Zlj096S...", # API Key Secret
            "98689850-Hj...", # Access Token
            "UroqCVpWKIt...") # Access Token Secret
  • Ensure you put your credentials in an env file to avoid pushing your secrets to the public 🙀.

Note: This package does not currently support OAuth authentication.

Code examples

See runtests.jl for example function calls.

using Twitter, Test
using JSON, OAuth

Wipro Elite National Talent Hunt Interview Experience 2020

Round 1 : Online Test

As you all know that Wipro conducted the National Talent Hunt exam all over the world.

The questions were mainly asked on Aptitude, Logical and verbal ability, Essay Writing.

In the technical section there were two codes open to all major languages like java, C, C++, python etc.

The coding questions were too easy and I solved both the questions and passed all the test cases

After giving the mail I received the interview Invite for further round.

Round 2: Technical Interview

The interview started by saying that, “Make yourself comfortable, by telling about yourself”.

The interviewer only asked questions based on my resume. The following were the questions asked to me.

What is Infosys Certified Software Programmer?

What was the pattern of that exam?

What was your project during the internship with persistent systems?

How many team members were there in your project?

How was the behavior of the team members?

What is your contribution during the internship period?

In how much time did you learned Ruby on Rails?

What is your final year project and why you choose the same?

What SDLC you will be using for developing the project and Why?

I hope you are relocatable, as we have offices all across India?

And Finally, He said “ I am done with the interview, Do you have any questions?

I asked Him, what is Wipro doing in the field of AI, ML?

He told the same.

At the end, He said, “Any more questions”

I replied No Sir

He then said “You are selected, you can move ahead for you HR interview”

Round 3: HR Interview

Following were the questions asked in the HR Interview

Tell me about Yourself?

What were the questions asked in Technical interview?

Which language you used to solve coding questions in Wipro NLTH exam?

Are you ready to work from anywhere in India?

What was the topic of the essay in the Wipro NLTH exam?

Note: If you know the topic then only answer the question, else say I don’t remember the topic of essay. Because if you try to fluke the topic, the interviewer may catch you and ask more questions on the same. This happened with many students on that day. Students fluked the essay topic, further, the interview asked them to describe what you have written in the essay in short.

And Finally, He said “ I am done with the interview, Do you have any questions?”

I asked him regarding the Wipro Turbo Challenge.

He replied that Wipro is working on it, you will receive the updates regarding the same through mail.

After someday, I received the Letter Of Intent for the post of Project Engineer.
