Python | Plotting column charts in excel sheet with data tables using XlsxWriter module
Prerequisite: Create and Write on an excel sheet
XlsxWriter is a Python library using which one can perform multiple operations on excel files like creating, writing, arithmetic operations and plotting graphs. Let’s see how to plot charts with Data tables using realtime data.
Charts are composed of at least one series of one or more data points. Series themselves are comprised of references to cell ranges. For plotting the charts on an excel sheet, firstly, create chart object of specific chart type( i.e Column chart etc.). After creating chart objects, insert data in it and lastly, add that chart object in the sheet object.
Code #1 : Plot a column chart with default data table.
For plotting this type of chart on an excel sheet, use set_table() method of the chart object.
Code #2 : Plot a column chart with default data table with legend keys.
For plotting this type of chart on an excel sheet, use set_table() method with ‘show_keys’ keyword argument of the chart object.
