We won't write the script for you, at least not for free...
If you want help, show us what you've tried, and what problems you're having.

If you want someone to do this for you, let me know, and I'll move this to the Jobs section.

This is very trivial to do for a basic text file or CSV/TSV file but Excel is a proprietary format that requires special modules and much more advanced code (although the modules do most of the hard work for you :D ). Do a search for python excel and pick the package you want to use and start learning it.
