Filter Excel and Convert an Excel File
Hello everyone,

The following is my attempt to filter the last modified xls file on a ftp server and convert that file to a csv on the same server.

from datetime import datetime

import ftplib

import ftputil

import pandas as pd

# Download some files from the login directory.

with ftputil.FTPHost('', 'username', 'password') as host:

flz= []

name2 = host.curdir

names = host.listdir(host.curdir)



for name in names:

if host.path.splitext(name)[1] == '.xls':

mtime = host.path.getmtime(name)

converttime = datetime.fromtimestamp(mtime).strftime('%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S')



for i in range(0, len(flz)):

if i == (len(flz) - 1):

print("This is the last element : " + str(flz[i]))

# Read the file

if host.path.isfile(str(flz[i])):

# Read the file

read_file = pd.read_excel(host.getcwd()(f'{flz[i]}'))

# Reconstruct file name, converting extension from '.xls' to '.csv'

output_csv = f"{host.getcwd()(str(flz[i]).name.replace('.xls', ''))}.csv"

# Create output csv file

read_file.to_csv(output_csv, index=None, header=True)

# Read csv file into DataFrame

df = pd.DataFrame(pd.read_csv(f"{host.curdir(get.cwd() / 'output_csv')}"))

# Output DataFrame


When ran I get an error message of:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Users\mrdrj\Desktop\Desk--2021 April 23\Desktop(Update)\", line 29, in <module>
    read_file = pd.read_excel(host.getcwd()(f'{flz[i]}'))
TypeError: 'str' object is not callable
How can I solve the filter and convert to csv ftp issue? Thanks
