Microsoft Excel

The UnstructuredExcelLoader is used to load Microsoft Excel files. The loader works with both .xlsx and .xls files. The page content will be the raw text of the Excel file. If you use the loader in "elements" mode, an HTML representation of the Excel file will be available in the document metadata under the text_as_html key.

from langchain.document_loaders import UnstructuredExcelLoader
loader = UnstructuredExcelLoader("example_data/stanley-cups.xlsx", mode="elements")
docs = loader.load()
