R for Microsoft Excel

If you currently use a spreadsheet like Microsoft Excel for data analysis, you might be interested in taking a look at this tutorial on how to transition from Excel to R by Tony Ojeda. The tutorial explains how to use R functions in place of Excel formulas, including tools like =AVERAGE and =VLOOKUP. For the most part, it uses modern R packages to keep the R code clear and concise.

You'll likely still be using Excel as a data source, though, so you'll also want to check out this guide to importing data from Excel to R from MilanoR.
