, sheetname=0, **kwds)

Read an Excel table into a pandas DataFrame

Parameters :

io : string, file-like object, or xlrd workbook.

The string could be a URL. Valid URL schemes include http, ftp, s3, and file. For file URLs, a host is expected. For instance, a local file could be file://localhost/path/to/workbook.xlsx

sheetname : string or int, default 0

Name of Excel sheet or the page number of the sheet

header : int, default 0

Row to use for the column labels of the parsed DataFrame

skiprows : list-like

Rows to skip at the beginning (0-indexed)

skip_footer : int, default 0

Rows at the end to skip (0-indexed)

index_col : int, default None

Column to use as the row labels of the DataFrame. Pass None if there is no such column

parse_cols : int or list, default None

  • If None then parse all columns,
  • If int then indicates last column to be parsed
  • If list of ints then indicates list of column numbers to be parsed
  • If string then indicates comma separated list of column names and column ranges (e.g. “A:E” or “A,C,E:F”)

na_values : list-like, default None

List of additional strings to recognize as NA/NaN

keep_default_na : bool, default True

If na_values are specified and keep_default_na is False the default NaN values are overridden, otherwise they’re appended to

verbose : boolean, default False

Indicate number of NA values placed in non-numeric columns

engine: string, default None

If io is not a buffer or path, this must be set to identify io. Acceptable values are None or xlrd

convert_float : boolean, default True

convert integral floats to int (i.e., 1.0 –> 1). If False, all numeric data will be read in as floats: Excel stores all numbers as floats internally

has_index_names : boolean, default False

True if the cols defined in index_col have an index name and are not in the header. Index name will be placed on a separate line below the header.

Returns :

parsed : DataFrame

DataFrame from the passed in Excel file
