XLSX => PDF
This is a simple application of my xtopdf toolkit, showing how to use it to convert XLSX data, i.e. Microsoft Excel data, to PDF (Portable Document Format). It only converts text data, not the formatting, colors, fonts, etc., that may be present in the Excel file.
For the input, I will use this small Excel file, fruits2.xlsx, which I created. A screenshot of it is below (click to enlarge):
Here is the code for XLSXtoPDF.py:
# XLSXtoPDF.py # Program to convert the data from an XLSX file to PDF. # Uses the openpyxl library and xtopdf. # Author: Vasudev Ram - http://jugad2.blogspot.com # Copyright 2015 Vasudev Ram. from openpyxl import load_workbook from PDFWriter import PDFWriter workbook = load_workbook('fruits2.xlsx', guess_types=True, data_only=True) worksheet = workbook.active pw = PDFWriter('fruits2.pdf') pw.setFont('Courier', 12) pw.setHeader('XLSXtoPDF.py - convert XLSX data to PDF') pw.setFooter('Generated using openpyxl and xtopdf') ws_range = worksheet.iter_rows('A1:H13') for row in ws_range: s = '' for cell in row: if cell.value is None: s += ' ' * 11 else: s += str(cell.value).rjust(10) + ' ' pw.writeLine(s) pw.savePage() pw.close()And here is a screenshot of the PDF output in fruits2.pdf:
