I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

You need to know from where(rows and cols) you will read the data


Hi Axel,

I am a beginner so can you help how I could install this library to our local v9 instance? Any howto link would do where I could learn installing libraries. 

Thanks in advance,

Hi Péter Mikó

In python the most used install method of libraries is using pip that is used to install libraries from


if the library does not install from pypi, then you need to check the library docs about how to install it. To install anything from pypi you could issue the command

pip install library_name

to install for example https://pypi.python.org/pypi/xlrd

pip install xlrd

there are a lot of resources out there of how to install libraries in python, also if you have an already running odoo v9 instance, you already had installed some libraries for that
