  7. Add Copy Paste Special functionalities (Values, Format, Picture, Clipboard)

    It would be good to add those features so that you can add your formated tables to Word, PDF, PPT easily.

    Hence you will not have to use win32 library to do this type of operation

  11. Add support for Excel RealTimeData (RTD)

    It would be nice if a UDF could return a Excel RealTimeData (RTD) object so that data could be streamed into excel. pyxll has something similar to this for example.

  13. Enable .number_format to accept array and array of arrays like .value

    I have an application that has to a lot of modifications to the number_formats based on data from an outside application and it is very slow in a Python loop. If .number_format could accept an array of arrays in the same way that .value can it would speed up my application and simplify my processing. Thanks!

  15. Allow Workbook.caller() to link to .xlam file.

    Allow the xlwings Python code to link to a calling .xlam file. It seems like wb=Workbook.caller() fails if the caller is a .xlam file.

  16. Add option opening a corrupted workbook

    Some of the workbooks I work with open as a corrupt workbook. To me there appears to be nothing wrong, but excel seems to think so. When opening these through a VBA macro, I use the "CorruptLoad:=xlExtractData" parameter, but in xlwings this throws a pywintypes.com_error message.

  17. Better functionality on Table

    As a recent user to xlwings I think it is an amazing tool to link Excel and Python! However, when doing my little Python IO functions I had to tweak a few things that I believe could be part of the xlwing functionality:

    When you do the opposite and paste a Pandas DF into excel, you may find your value shave been changed because excel believes 0001234 is 1234 and 12345E7 is 12345x10^7. To avoid that I have to first select the range and make the format = "@". This could be sorted by adding a new argument so the…

  19. When transfering nan values to Excel, have them appear as #N/A instead of 65535.

    I know one can change nan values to None and get blanks in Excel, but it would be really great if nan were to translate to the #N/A error. Alternatively, provide some means of setting errors in Excel (preferably so that it can happen when transferring a range rather than cell by cell so it would be fast).

  20. Add save as pdf option

    I create 1,000s of reports that need to be saved both in Excel and pdf format. It would be nice to be able to save the file in both formats from python.
