Hi all and thanks in advanced. 


Im working on creating a python tool that will be placed in a tooblox on a network drive within my organization. The tool needs to use the xlutils module but our organization does not have the module installed on our computers. I know that if you place the module in the same folder as the scripting tool .py file you should be able to import. I set up my toolbox and placed the module in the same folder as the toolbox / script. 


When I run the script from IDE everything runs fine. However, running the tool from within ArcMap yields the error:

AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'copy'


Anyone have no tips?
