XLConnect: Excel Connector for R

Build Status Research software impact

XLConnect is a comprehensive and cross-platform R package for manipulating Microsoft Excel files from within R. XLConnect differs from other related R packages in that it is completely cross-platform and as such runs under Windows, Unix/Linux and Mac (32- and 64-bit). Moreover, it does not require any installation of Microsoft Excel or any other special drivers to be able to read & write Excel files. The only requirement is a recent version of a Java Runtime Environment (JRE).

The package can easily be installed from CRAN via install.packages("XLConnect"). In order to get started have a look at the XLConnect and XLConnect for the Impatient package vignettes, the numerous demos available via demo(package = "XLConnect") or browse through the comprehensive reference manual.

Alternatively, you may install XLConnect directly from our github repository using the excellent devtools package:


# Installs the master branch of XLConnect (= current development version)
install_github("xlconnect", username = "miraisolutions", ref = "master")

# Installs XLConnect 0.2-12
install_github("xlconnect", username = "miraisolutions", ref = "0.2-12")
