How to data import (excel sheet) using api

Excel sheet datas import using data import tool via api


You can write a python program to read the excel file and insert the record in Doctype using the API.

Below is the AI generated code for the sales order:

import pandas as pd
import requests

def read_excel_file(file_path):
    # Read the Excel file
    df = pd.read_excel(file_path)
    return df

def upload_sales_order(data):
    # API endpoint for uploading sales orders in ERPNext
    url = "https://your-erpnext-instance/api/resource/Sales Order"

    # Headers for API request
    headers = {
        "Authorization": "Bearer your_api_key",
        "Content-Type": "application/json"

    # Iterate through each row in the DataFrame and upload as a sales order
    for index, row in data.iterrows():
        payload = {
            "doctype": "Sales Order",
            "customer": row['Customer'],  # Assuming 'Customer' is a column in your Excel file
            # Add more fields as per your Excel file columns
            # Example: "date": row['Date'],
            #          "total_amount": row['Total Amount']

        # Make POST request to ERPNext API
        response =, json=payload, headers=headers)

        # Check response status
        if response.status_code == 200:
            print("Sales order uploaded successfully.")
            print("Error uploading sales order. Status code:", response.status_code)

def main():
    # Path to the Excel file containing sales order data
    excel_file_path = "path/to/your/excel_file.xlsx"

    # Read Excel file
    sales_order_data = read_excel_file(excel_file_path)

    # Upload sales orders via API

if __name__ == "__main__":

Do you think this is the right way? what if there are 1000 sales order. system will crash if it bombarded with these much of API request in a fraction of second.


Currently I am using System in Production to create Sales Invoice this way and creating three hundred Invoices in 1 Second smoothly.

If you want to handle more load system can handle, you need to increase the Gunicorn workers as per the load.
