Re: how to read XLS file in Odoo

We read xls files with xlrd python lib [1] and this works really great.
We combine this with our connector_flow [2] module. But no need for
this. So first Task reads xls and make chunks of rows. The second task
import the chanks in what ever you need.

In our use case we implemented this to import a excel list with
inventory correction.

So the mayn code looks like:

from xlrd import open_workbook

#it is meta object of ir.attachment
file_obj = self.session.pool.get('impexp.file')
f = file_obj.browse(, self.session.uid, file_id)
data_file = b64decode(f.attachment_id.datas)

wb = open_workbook(file_contents=data_file)
for s in wb.sheets():
    for row in range(s.nrows):
        data_row = []
        for col in range(s.ncols):
            value = (s.cell(row, col).value)

The Code is part of a bigger module where all the mapping stuff is hard
codet so we need to make a complete example but at the moment not time
for this.

Kind Regards
