Work better together

Make analog spreadsheets digital with a camera click

You now can add data to Excel directly from a photo. Using the Excel app, just take a picture of a printed data table on your Android or iPhone device and automatically convert the picture into a fully editable table in Excel. This new image recognition functionality eliminates the need to manually enter hardcopy data.
