Microsoft Introduces Python in Excel for Data Analysis and Visualization @Microsoft #Python #DataAnalysis @ThePSF
Python is one of the most popular programming languages today, loved by businesses and students alike and Microsoft Excel is an essential tool to organize, manipulate and analyze all kinds of data. But, until now, there hasn’t been an easy way to make those two worlds work together.
Microsoft announced today they are introducing the Public Preview of Python in Excel – making it possible to integrate Python and Excel analytics within the same Excel grid for uninterrupted workflow.
Python in Excel combines Python’s powerful data analysis and visualization libraries with Excel’s features you know. You can manipulate and explore data in Excel using Python plots and libraries, and then use Excel’s formulas, charts and PivotTables to further refine your insights.
To use Python in Excel today, join the Microsoft 365 Insider Program. Choose the Beta Channel Insider level to get the latest builds of the Excel application.
Microsoft wants your feedback! Excel and Python users can to give feedback directly within the application (go to Help > Feedback), suggest improvements on our Feedback portal, or engage with our team on GitHub.
