Control R from Excel

February 20, 2014

(This article was first published on R by Emmanuel Jjunju, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Here is a simple script modified from that you can just run in R. Follow the instructions in the ensuing dilaogue boxes after running the script.

This RExcel interface will help you if you tend to work with people whose knowledge of R is weak but you want them to be able to use R-scripts that you share with them.

And the result: A new toolset complete with R_menus under the Addins Ribbon in Excel.

More customisations are described on Other
