Excel file handling using an add-in

Starting from the Tanagra's 1.4.11 version, a new EXCEL add-in is available. It enables to define a data mining analysis directly from EXCEL spreadsheet without closing the EXCEL session.

The main asset of this functionality is that we can perform all data preparation (data transformation, feature construction, etc.) and basic descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation, pivot table, etc.) in the spreadsheet. Then we call TANAGRA, from EXCEL, only for advanced machine learning technique.

In this tutorial, we show how to install and use this EXCEL add-in.
