Does anyone know if it's possible to retrieve the Column Headings from an
IBM i DB2 DDS File and use them as Column Headings when creating an Excel
Spreadsheet using a Python Script with XLSXWRITER and Pandas?

Yes. Use the QSYS2.SYSCOLUMNS2 view. The column heading (as a 60-char
string, 20 chars for each "line" of COLHDG) is available as
COLUMN_HEADING. In case you are interested in the text, get it from
COLUMN_TEXT. Use TABLE_NAME and TABLE_SCHEMA to specify the file and
library, respectively. Be sure to use all caps for the file and
library.

Official documentation is here:
