You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
Your task for this exercise is to create this simple calculator in Excel:
Note that you won't be able to do any formatting (or at least, this exercise certainly won't ask you to).
To do this import the openpyxl module, then create a new workbook, populate it as shown, save it and close it. Some syntax to help you:
|Operation||How to do it|
|Create a new workbook||workbook_variable = openpyxl.Workbook()|
|Referring to the current sheet||worksheet_variable = workbook_variable.active|
|Changing a cell value||worksheet_variable.cell(row,col).value = ?|
|Saving a workbook||workbook_variable.save(file_name_here)|
|Closing a workbook||workbook_variable.close()|
Check that your Excel workbook has been created OK (and that your calculator works!), then close your program down.
