The Editor allows users to more seamlessly leverage the power of Python for data analysis and manipulation alongside conventional Excel formulas.
The Python Editor comes from Excel Labs, an internal Microsoft Garage initiative consisting of members from the Excel team working on experimental projects.
The Editor offers an integrated development environment-like experience for Python in Excel, with features like syntax highlighting, IntelliSense, automatic code completion, and debugging capabilities.
The Python Editor provides an optimized user experience for longer, more traditional programming workflows. It reduces risks when iterating on code before committing changes.
The utility is currently available as an add-in through the Excel Add-Ins Store for anyone who has enabled Python in Excel support.
The Python Editor is not natively built into Excel, but could potentially become integrated if it gains enough popularity among the Excel user community.
The dedicated Python Editor makes it much easier for Excel users to leverage the power of Python for advanced data analysis, modeling, and automation tasks alongside their normal spreadsheet workflows.
