Hello, I am just a beginner and need some help with Python code that would allow me to search for something specific within an excel sheet.  I am already able to read and write to any cell, but find it very inefficient to do nest loops in order to just find some word that I am looking for.  
Example:  I am searching for the string 'Abc123', and know that this name must reside within column 4 of heading "names".  How can I code Python to look for this string.  
Thank you for your help.
