Prerequisites: Python GUI – tkinter, Read csv using pandas

CSV file is a Comma Separated Value file that uses a comma to separate values. It is basically used for exchanging data between different applications. In this, individual rows are separated by a newline. Fields of data in each row are delimited with a comma.

Modules Needed

  • Pandas: Python is a great language for doing data analysis, primarily because of the fantastic ecosystem of data-centric python packages. To install this module type the below command in the terminal.
    pip install pandas
  • pandastable: This library provides a table widget for Tkinter with plotting and data manipulation functionality. To install this module type the below command in the terminal
    pip install pandastable
  • tkintertable: This library is used for adding tables to a Tkinter application. To install this library type the below command in the terminal.
    pip install tkintertable

Below is the implementation.

Input CSV File:


import pandas as pd
from tkinter import *
from tkinter import filedialog
from tkinter import messagebox as msg
from pandastable import Table
from tkintertable import TableCanvas
class csv_to_excel:
    def __init__(self, root):
        self.root = root
        self.file_name = ''
        self.f = Frame(self.root,
                       height = 200,
                       width = 300)
        # Place the frame on root window
        # Creating label widgets
        self.message_label = Label(self.f,
                                   text = 'GeeksForGeeks',
                                   font = ('Arial', 19,'underline'),
                                   fg = 'Green')
        self.message_label2 = Label(self.f,
                                    text = 'Converter of CSV to Excel file',
                                    font = ('Arial', 14,'underline'),
                                    fg = 'Red')
        # Buttons
        self.convert_button = Button(self.f,
                                     text = 'Convert',
                                     font = ('Arial', 14),
                                     bg = 'Orange',
                                     fg = 'Black',

                                  bg = 'Red',
                                  fg = 'Black'
                                  command = root.destroy)
        # Placing the widgets using grid manager
        self.message_label.grid(row = 1, column = 1)
        self.message_label2.grid(row = 2, column = 1)
        self.convert_button.grid(row = 3, column = 0,
                                 padx = 0, pady = 15)

                                 padx = 10, pady = 15)
        self.exit_button.grid(row = 3, column = 2,
                              padx = 10, pady = 15)
    def convert_csv_to_xls(self):
            self.file_name = filedialog.askopenfilename(initialdir = '/Desktop',
                                                        title = 'Select a CSV file',
                                                        filetypes = (('csv file','*.csv'),
                                                                     ('csv file','*.csv')))
            df = pd.read_csv(self.file_name)
            # Next - Pandas DF to Excel file on disk
            if(len(df) == 0):      
                msg.showinfo('No Rows Selected', 'CSV has no rows')
                # saves in the current directory
                with pd.ExcelWriter('GeeksForGeeks.xls') as writer:

        except FileNotFoundError as e:
                msg.showerror('Error in opening file', e)
    def display_xls_file(self):
            self.file_name = filedialog.askopenfilename(initialdir = '/Desktop',

            df = pd.read_excel(self.file_name)
            if (len(df)== 0):
                msg.showinfo('No records', 'No records')
            # Now display the DF in 'Table' object
            # under'pandastable' module
            self.f2 = Frame(self.root, height=200, width=300
            self.table = Table(self.f2, dataframe=df,read_only=True)
        except FileNotFoundError as e:
