While it is so much better than it was even a year ago, there is still a lot of moving parts, and not everything is in the same place.

Shell and path:

xlsxwriter isn't in the ibm repositories so you are back to pip. First choice should always be the ibm repositories. If it isn't there, then you can try pip.

bash-5.1$ pip3 install xlsxwriter
Requirement already satisfied: xlsxwriter in /QOpenSys/pkgs/lib/python3.6/site-packages (1.2.6)

Thanks Kevin. When I ran that command using STRQSH I got the same nothing
to do message. But when I run the excel script I get these errors:

python3 /pyscripts/write_excel.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/pyscripts/write_excel.py", line 5, in <module>
import xlsxwriter as xl
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'xlsxwriter'

I don't find xlsxwriter in ACS open source or anywhere else. Do I need a
separate step to install that? Thank you, trying to learn how to do this.
I also can use Putty, I typed BASH once connected and see the same prompts
as you, but I don't think my path is setup properly, nothing works. I'll
research that some more.
