Automating Excel Report Creation with Python

Mira Celine Klein needs to create Excel reports:

In this article you will learn how to get data from Python into an Excel file and add some formatting. Excel reports are a great way to communicate data or results, especially to people who don’t use Python. Another great advantage is that you can create automated reports: You define once what the reports should look like, and then you can create it very quickly for, for example, different subgroups of data, or data that is updated regularly.

The first part of the article describes the most important functions and actions, for example, setting column widths, changing font colors, or adding hyperlinks to other sheets. In the second part, all of these features are combined in one Excel file.

This looks a lot like programming against the Excel COM objects in Powershell but maybe a little easier.
