How to access an uploaded dataset for analysis

Thank you very much for Dash! I am working on my first app, which is supposed to be a dashboard where my users can upload files, the file would be cleaned using python functions and graphs plotted. I dont know how to access the uploaded files in a dataframe. My current solution involve me hard-coding the dataframe in my script, this wouldn’t be suitable for deployment.

I have gone through the Upload component tutorial which cover returning texts and tables, I would like to access the actual dataframe and clean it with functions instead.

How can I go about this? I know its trivial, but I just cant find the solution.

    import pandas as pd
    data = pd.read_excel(str(filename), sheet_name=2)
    rows_to_drop = ['Current SharePoint 2010 sites'
    ,'     Not migrating to 365 (locked)',
    '     Migration to 365 complete (locked)',
                '     Stale (may not need to be migrated)',
       'Total Active Site collections (2010 & O365 sites)',
                 'Sites Created by Group creation process',
                      'O365 sites - shell - informational']
    data.drop(labels = rows_to_drop, inplace=True)
    data.dropna(inplace = True)

    return data

# temporary solution cos I dont know how to access files uploaded

You can probably extend parse_contents function from upload example.
if saves uploaded file in df variable which you can clean up and process as you wish.
Or save file to DB for further processing:

elif ‘xls’ in filename:
# Assume that the user uploaded an excel file
df = pd.read_excel(io.BytesIO(decoded))
df.to_sql(‘table1’, conn, if_exists=‘replace’, index=False )
