having problem using xlrd


I tried using xlrd to read an Excel file and kept getting this error:

AttributeError: 'Book' object has no attribute 'mem'
>>import xlrd
p = r'C:\2.xls'
wb = xlrd.open_workbook(p)
AttributeError: 'Book' object has no attribute 'mem'
AttributeError: 'Book' object has no attribute 'mem'

Any hint?


p.s. i tried posting the question at the python-excel mailing list.
but it seems failed. if it shows up later, sorry for crossposting.
