I'm new to this platform, so not sure if the forum selected is correct or not. I'm creating a webapp, where most of the backend operations include reading excel files. I'm aware that internally pandas use xlrd.
1. So if i use xlrd to read an excel file instead of pandas, will the operation be faster?
2. Using pandas just for reading an excel with not much work to process using pandas, which is recommended? pandas or xlrd ?
This portal is aimed at software developers utilizing Refinitiv APIs. I'm afraid your question is off-topic here, as it pertains to generic software development in Python, not specific to any Refinitiv products, services or APIs. I suggest you post your question on resources that are better suited for generic programming problems like Stackoverflow etc.
