HI, I'm using excelpy set complex value to excel, I got the wrong :

ierr, totalload = psspy.systot('LOAD')

Yes, you can do it with formula COMPLEX!

First, define a function converting the complex value to an Excel complex formula:

def complex_formula(cmplx):
    return "=complex("+str(cmplx.real)+","+str(cmplx.imag)+")"

Then use the function when writing to Excel:

import excelpy

ierr, totalload = psspy.systot('LOAD')

P = totalload.real Q = totalload.imag

wb = excelpy.workbook()

wb.setcell('A1', P) wb.setcell('B1', Q)

I'm sure you can elaborate on that basic code.

You cannot export complex numbers using this set_cell function, only real numbers. That's why I am exporting P and Q into separate cells. If you try to export a complex number you get this error message.

TypeError: Objects of type 'complex' can not be converted to a COM VARIANT

This method I have tried, but there is no way to let P + jQ, output to the excel in one cell ?
