Any particular reason for moving to Python? I know this is a
Python list and we are all Python fans but, frankly, it sounds
like your needs might be better met with R.
There are Python bindings for R but, honestly, I think raw R
might suit what you want better. You can read Excel data into a data
frame and then slice and dice it any which way you want.
The right tool for the job...
