How to Use Wolfram Data in Excel

Note: This is now available with a Microsoft 365 Family or Personal subscription.


Highlight data and click the Automatic button

Select cells or columns in a table with the text to convert, then select the Automatic button in the Data Types gallery of the Data tab. Wolfram's natural language understanding will recognize the entities and convert them.


Browse associated data

Select the Insert Data button that appears to browse a list of all available properties. Select one to insert data into your workbook. When you have data in a table, Excel will automatically fill the table for you. Wolfram has hundreds of expertly curated entities in Excel, encompassing the sciences, arts, culture, and more.


Automatically get data

Once converted to an entity, you can use key Excel features to work with data pulled from Wolfram. Sort and Filter data, or create formulas that reference an entity's properties and values.
