Coming to an Excel Near You…

Python. Yes, the ever-popular Python programming language is set to be featured in Excel in the near future. Microsoft is partnering with Anaconda, a leading enterprise grade Python repository. Python in Excel leverages the Anaconda distribution for Python running in Azure, which includes the most popular Python libraries such as pandas for data manipulation, statsmodels for advanced statistical modeling, as well as Matplotlib and seaborn for data visualization. For now Python in Excel is only available in public preview for those in the Microsoft 365 Insiders program Beta Channel. However, this feature will roll out to Excel for Windows first, starting with build 16818, and then to the other platforms at a later date. But soon you will be able to do advanced data analysis in the familiar Excel environment by accessing Python directly from the Excel ribbon. No set-up or installation will be required.
