BUG: `df.to_excel` fails for `"border-style: hair"` with `xlsxwriter`

This issue has been tracked since 2022-09-19.

Pandas version checks

  • I have checked that this issue has not already been reported.

  • I have confirmed this bug exists on the latest version of pandas.

  • I have confirmed this bug exists on the main branch of pandas.

Reproducible Example

import pandas as pd

df = pd.DataFrame({"a": [1]})
styler = df.style.applymap(lambda x: "border-style: hair; border-color: black")

styler.to_excel(r"test_border.xlsx", engine="xlsxwriter")

Issue Description

The CSSToExcelConverter._border_style function does not return any value (i.e., None) when the style string is not recognized. However, "hair" should be a recognized style string in xlsxwriter, corresponding to border index "7". This leads to a crash in xlsxwriter. Moreover, there is no path to actually return the "hair" style for any engine.

Expected Behavior

Use of border-style: hair will export a spreadsheet with the correct formatting.

Thanks for the report @tehunter! Your versions indicate 1.5.0rc; do you know if this bug exists in previous versions?

tehunter wrote this answer on 2022-09-19

I know that previous versions also had an inability to use the "hair" style. I'm unsure at the moment if it led to the same error. I think it probably gave the same error identified here and in #45312.

In addition to adding support for the "hair" style, I think we probably need to have a "soft fail" for unrecognized/unimplemented border combinations. I'll work on adding both in a PR.

However, "hair" should be a recognized style string in xlsxwriter, corresponding to border index "1"

Why not index 7? Does weight 0 mean that there is no visible border for index 7?

tehunter wrote this answer on 2022-09-21

Yes, thanks for confirming. I misread the table; "hair" corresponds to index 7.
