I looked at the previous threads regarding this topic, but they have not helped solve the problem.
I’m trying to open a password protected file in excel without any user interaction. I searched online, and found this code which uses win32com.client
When I run this, I still get the prompt to enter the password…
from xlrd import * import win32com.client import csv import sys xlApp = win32com.client.Dispatch("Excel.Application") print "Excel library version:", xlApp.Version filename,password = r"\HRAMyfile.xlsx", 'caa team' xlwb = xlApp.Workbooks.Open(filename, Password=password)
I don’t think that named parameters work in this case. So you’d have to do something like:
xlwb = xlApp.Workbooks.Open(filename, False, True, None, password)
See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff194819.aspx for details on the Workbooks.Open method.
If your file size is small, you can probably save that as “.csv”.
and then read
It worked for me 🙂
Openpyxl Package works if you are using linux system. You can use secure the file by setting up a password and open the file using the same password.
