Up until now, Office Scripts could only be used in Excel for the web—I’m excited to announce that you can now run your scripts in Excel for Windows with the simple click of a (script) button! 

 

We heard you! Your feedback helped us make the decision to bring script buttons to Windows. Since releasing Office Scripts, we have heard you’d like a way to share scripts with colleagues, as well as the ability to use scripts in Excel for Windows.

 

With script buttons becoming available in Excel for Windows, we move one step closer to making Office Scripts an automation solution that you can use to manage your workflow anytime and anywhere. While you still need to use Excel for the web to create and manage your scripts, we recognize that Excel users utilize a variety of platforms to complete their tasks. So we intend to investigate more cross-platform investments as part of our future work.
