Process Excel Files in R Program


If you want to import data from excel files in R program,
you have many options :

  • Use R packages readxl/writexl with read_excel()/write_xlsx() functions.
  • Use R package rio with import() and export() functions.
  • The rio package uses same simple API calls import() and export() for
    dealing with many different formats like csv, xls, xlsx, etc.
  • In my experience, I wanted lower level control over import/export
    so I always end up using readxl package.
  • For data cleanup, you may want to use R stringr package for string manipuations.
