Features

Straightforward excel file parser and builder.

  • Relies on SheetJS xlsx module to parse/build excel sheets.
  • Built with TypeScript for static type checking with exported types along the library.

Install

npm install node-xlsx --save

Quickstart

Parse an xlsx file

import xlsx from 'node-xlsx';
// Or var xlsx = require('node-xlsx').default;

// Parse a buffer
const workSheetsFromBuffer = xlsx.parse(fs.readFileSync(`${__dirname}/myFile.xlsx`));
// Parse a file
const workSheetsFromFile = xlsx.parse(`${__dirname}/myFile.xlsx`);

Build an xlsx file

import xlsx from 'node-xlsx';
// Or var xlsx = require('node-xlsx').default;

const data = [
  [1, 2, 3],
  [true, false, null, 'sheetjs'],
  ['foo', 'bar', new Date('2014-02-19T14:30Z'), '0.3'],
  ['baz', null, 'qux'],
];
var buffer = xlsx.build([{name: 'mySheetName', data: data}]); // Returns a buffer

Custom column width

import xlsx from 'node-xlsx';
// Or var xlsx = require('node-xlsx').default;

const data = [
  [1, 2, 3],
  [true, false, null, 'sheetjs'],
  ['foo', 'bar', new Date('2014-02-19T14:30Z'), '0.3'],
  ['baz', null, 'qux'],
];
const sheetOptions = {'!cols': [{wch: 6}, {wch: 7}, {wch: 10}, {wch: 20}]};

var buffer = xlsx.build([{name: 'mySheetName', data: data}], {sheetOptions}); // Returns a buffer

Spanning multiple rows A1:A4 in every sheets

import xlsx from 'node-xlsx';
// Or var xlsx = require('node-xlsx').default;

const data = [
  [1, 2, 3],
  [true, false, null, 'sheetjs'],
  ['foo', 'bar', new Date('2014-02-19T14:30Z'), '0.3'],
  ['baz', null, 'qux'],
];
const range = {s: {c: 0, r: 0}, e: {c: 0, r: 3}}; // A1:A4
const sheetOptions = {'!merges': [range]};

var buffer = xlsx.build([{name: 'mySheetName', data: data}], {sheetOptions}); // Returns a buffer

Spanning multiple rows A1:A4 in second sheet

import xlsx from 'node-xlsx';
// Or var xlsx = require('node-xlsx').default;

const dataSheet1 = [
  [1, 2, 3],
  [true, false, null, 'sheetjs'],
  ['foo', 'bar', new Date('2014-02-19T14:30Z'), '0.3'],
  ['baz', null, 'qux'],
];
const dataSheet2 = [
  [4, 5, 6],
  [7, 8, 9, 10],
  [11, 12, 13, 14],
  ['baz', null, 'qux'],
];
const range = {s: {c: 0, r: 0}, e: {c: 0, r: 3}}; // A1:A4
const sheetOptions = {'!merges': [range]};

var buffer = xlsx.build([
  {name: 'myFirstSheet', data: dataSheet1},
  {name: 'mySecondSheet', data: dataSheet2, options: sheetOptions},
]); // Returns a buffer

Beware that if you try to merge several times the same cell, your xlsx file will be seen as corrupted.

  • Using Primitive Object Notation Data values can also be specified in a non-abstracted representation.

Examples:

const rowAverage = [[{t: 'n', z: 10, f: '=AVERAGE(2:2)'}], [1, 2, 3]];
var buffer = xlsx.build([{name: 'Average Formula', data: rowAverage}]);

Refer to xlsx documentation for valid structure and values:

Troubleshooting

This library requires at least node.js v10. For legacy versions, you can use this workaround before using the lib.

npm i --save object-assign
Object.prototype.assign = require('object-assign');
