Using Openpyxl to generate excel report

Copper Contributor

Hello all, I am working with a group, and we are having a slight problem with openpyxl. We am trying to generate a report of which I can add multiple sheets to said report. There are calculations that happen in the main that are sent over with the template and report file to another class.

First the user will select a template, which was premade. After the selection is made the code will create an excel sheet with.

wb = Workbook() + report_Name_Extension)

This new sheet is the output or report file. The user will then be prompted to choose their desired output file, which could be the file recently created or another from another point in time. Once the user clicks on the button to create the report, all the information will be sent to the class mentioned before. In that class we use the copy_sheet, copy_sheet_attributes , and copy_cells methods from openpyxl and 3 other methods that use openpyxl to put the information into the excel sheet. We are able to create the first sheet, copy the template, and put in the information. In the code the file then saves and closes itself.

The problem comes when in the same session, we try to add another sheet of information to the same file, but we run into this error
