Thank you, Luke. I’ve shared this with the team!


Can you create your own private package and use within excel python, or does the package have to only in anaconda cloud?


Only packages from Anaconda Distribution are available with the Python in Excel integration at this time.

any plans for the future to use external packages?

We are not aware of any such plans currently, but ultimately this would be a Microsoft decision. I hope that helps!
