Error code in Python

Hi i’m getting an error when trying to read an excel which is in (xlsx) format, this excel has links to other excels.
and same code works when i use .xls

error code image

Its impossible to say, because we can’t see the entire traceback.

What IDE are you using? It is displaying so much extra information that the important information is hidden.

If it works when you use .xls, and doesn’t work when you use .xlsx, then you should use .xls.

Without seeing the rest of the error, I cannot even guess what the problem is with the .xlsx file. Maybe it doesn’t exist?

Thank you for your reply, please note that Im new to Python and to this forum. Im not sure what you mean by IDE,
anyway i’m using Jupiter note book launched from Anaconda.

file exists in the mentioned path. i double checked.

if you want me to show the entire error report, i don’t know how to do it in this forum there is no option to attach a file

Copy and paste the code and the complete traceback. The code and the traceback should be posted wrapped in triple backticks to preserve the formatting.

For the code:

if True:
    print(''Hello world!')

and for the traceback:

traceback stuff

It looks like a Jupyter notebook to me, a rather nice interactive Python
env with “cells” which are either markdown text or Python code, thus
providing a form of literate programming and also lending itself to be
the basis of an explained workflow for whatever purpose.

For the Code

import pandas as pd

file_path = ‘D:\Mohommed.Althaf\Desktop\WIP\a.xlsx’
df = pd.read_excel(file_path)

for the traceback:

ValueError Traceback (most recent call last)
Input In [54], in <cell line: 4>()
1 import pandas as pd
3 file_path = ‘D:\Mohommed.Althaf\Desktop\WIP\a.xlsx’

5 print(df)

I think it’s complaining about a font size in the spreadsheet, but I can’t be sure.

Hi i’m getting an error when when the excel file is in (xlsx) format, this excel has links to other excels too.
