Pandas: Looking up the list of sheets in an excel file
The new version of Pandas uses the following interface to load Excel files:
read_excel('path_to_file.xls', 'Sheet1', index_col=None, na_values=['NA'])
but what if I don't know the sheets that are available?
For example, I am working with excel files that the following sheets
Data 1, Data 2 ..., Data N, foo, bar
but I don't know
N a priori.
Is there any way to get the list of sheets from an excel document in Pandas?
You can still use the ExcelFile class (and the
xl = pd.ExcelFile('foo.xls') xl.sheet_names # see all sheet names xl.parse(sheet_name) # read a specific sheet to DataFrame
seedocs for parse for more options...
