If you can get your Excel data into CSV format, the csv module others 
have already mentioned is a great way to go.  It makes it very easy to 
read and write CSV-format files, which can be used with other 
spreadsheets and other programs, too.

However, if you need to create or input actual Excel worksheets, which 
contain more than simple data tables like CSV supports, check out a 
third-party module called pyExcelerator.
