Using xlwt module, one can perform multiple operations on spreadsheet. For example, writing or modifying the data can be done in Python. Also, the user might have to go through various sheets and retrieve data based on some criteria or modify some rows and columns and do a lot of work. Let’s see how to create and write to an excel-sheet using Python.  
Code #1 :
# Writing to an excel 
# sheet using Python
import xlwt
from xlwt import Workbook
  
# Workbook is created
wb = Workbook()
  
# add_sheet is used to create sheet.
sheet1 = wb.add_sheet('Sheet 1')
  
sheet1.write(1, 0, 'ISBT DEHRADUN')
sheet1.write(2, 0, 'SHASTRADHARA')
sheet1.write(3, 0, 'CLEMEN TOWN')
sheet1.write(4, 0, 'RAJPUR ROAD')
sheet1.write(5, 0, 'CLOCK TOWER')
sheet1.write(0, 1, 'ISBT DEHRADUN')
sheet1.write(0, 2, 'SHASTRADHARA')
sheet1.write(0, 3, 'CLEMEN TOWN')
sheet1.write(0, 4, 'RAJPUR ROAD')
sheet1.write(0, 5, 'CLOCK TOWER')
  
wb.save('xlwt example.xls')

                    
Output : Sample excel file  
Code #2 : Adding style sheet in excel

# Specifying style
style = xlwt.easyxf('font: bold 1')
  
# Specifying column
sheet.write(0, 0, 'SAMPLE', style)
workbook.save("sample.xls")

                    
Output : Sample file   Code #3 : Adding multiple styles to a cell

# Writing on specified sheet
sheet.write(0, 0, 'SAMPLE', style)
