How to import data from database to excel
I am using microsoft access database.
I want to copy data from the table with column names and paste it into a excel file.
I try to copy but I got some errors

import openpyxl as op
import pyodbc

con = pyodbc.connect(r'Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)};DBQ=path;')
cr = con.cursor()

loc = (r'path of the excel file')

wb = op.load_workbook(loc)
sheet = wb.create_sheet(0)

cr.execute('select * from  detail')


for row in cr.columns(table='detail'):

for row in result:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:/Users/Nick/PycharmProjects/py/venv/", line 21, in <module> sheet.append(rows.column_name) File "C:\Users\Nick\PycharmProjects\py\venv\lib\site-packages\openpyxl\worksheet\", line 661, in append self._invalid_row(iterable) File "C:\Users\Nick\PycharmProjects\py\venv\lib\site-packages\openpyxl\worksheet\", line 792, in _invalid_row type(iterable)) TypeError: Value must be a list, tuple, range or generator, or a dict. Supplied value is <class 'str'>
for row in result:

In that, you need to make a row as List as follows:
for row in result:
listrow = list(row)
