How to read excel files in R?

This recipe helps you read excel files in R


Recipe Objective

Excel is a spreadsheet application by Microsoft which is widely used for organising and storing data in the form of tables. R provides us with multiple ways to read, write and manipulate these files. ​

In this recipe we will discuss how to read an excel file in R

Step 1: Installing and loading the required package

We use "xlsx" package to read excel files (.xls, .xlsx) ​

#installing a package install.packages("readxl") #loading a package library(readxl)

Step 2: Reading an excel file

We use read_excel("Your PATH") function to read the file ​

result = readxl::read_excel("R_183_test_file_excel.xlsx") result
