Hi , i try to do a seeker, read an xls file ,and find a word,(input()),and show all the content of the row

Why is line 11 (for col...) there? Shouldn't you just iterate over all the rows? Notice you don't use col anywhere in the program.

I think caca ends up being a list of all the cell values in row i. In which case, after line 13, you would want something like if myword in caca:, and indent line 14.
