# Bundling with py2exe¶

When using periodictable as part of a bundled package, you need to be sure to include the data associated with the tables. This can be done by adding a periodictable entry into the package_data property of the distutils setup file:

import periodictable
...
setup(..., package_data=periodictable.package_data, ...)


If you have a number of packages which add package data (for example, periodic table extensions), then you can use the following:

import periodictable

package_data = {}
...
package_data.update(periodictable.package_data)
...
setup(..., package_data=package_data, ...)
