Hey all,

I'm trying to practice working with Excel files in Python with Repl.

However, I'm not even sure if repl identifies Excel files; I always get an error when I run the code.

@RYANTADIPARTHI use the openpyxl module/package it is much better than pandas, pandas is mainly for the CSV data, if you ever did the challenges of freecodecamp data anaylisis you will see they are using csv instead of excel

You can build an CSV parser,
https://docs.python.org/3/library/csv.html

but for .xlsx, it's mostly binary (citation needed), so you can't.
