Reading Excel Files with Python

Hello,

I am working within the grasshopper environment and currently using TT tools to read excels. However, ideally I would prefer to do this totally within a python script so i have the option of moving it within pyrevit at some point.

I have read that pandas can not be read within the IronPython environment (that we are using within grasshopper) so I would love to know what other people use.

Thankyou very much!
