I would love to use python-docx, but it is only available as a
.wheel, and requires PIP to install.
For security reasons, our PCs are locked down tight and we can't install. There is also something else going on with the firewall, because I finally figured out that I could use
python.exe" -m pip install -U pip wheel docx
but that timed out, so I imagine that they are blocking certain kinds of traffic.
.wheel file is just a
.zip with different extension, I could rename it and extract the files, but I don't know where to copy them to, plus there are the dependencies (lxml, which, in turn, has its own dependencies).
So far, this reads like a question for another site, and maybe it will become one. Right now, I just want a Python library, preferably a single file, with instructions to say where to copy it (some central Python directory, or the directory of the script that uses it), so that I can
import <library> and use it to read/write MS word files (2103 and later).
