I am trying to read an excel file this way :

newFile = pd.ExcelFile(PATH\FileName.xlsx)

ParsedData = pd.io.parsers.ExcelFile.parse(newFile)

which throws an error that says two arguments expected, I don't know what the second argument is and also what I am trying to achieve here is to convert an Excel file to a DataFrame, Am I doing it the right way? or is there any other way to do this using pandas?

1.Call ExcelFile

2.Then you call the .parse method and pass it the sheet name.

>>> xl = pd.ExcelFile("dummydata.xlsx")

>>> xl.sheet_names

[u'Sheet1', u'Sheet2', u'Sheet3']

>>> df = xl.parse("Sheet1")

>>> df.head()

                  Tid  dummy1    dummy2    dummy3    dummy4    dummy5  \
