The article describes how data mining will be available from the heart of Excel 2007 with features such as "Fill by example"
The data mining add-in to Office 07 will offer a data-mining tab in Excel, enabling anyone to undertake analyse; for instance, press a button and the tool will tell you, for a given target, what are the influencers. The tool will find interesting rows, and it will find exceptions. All of this is done without the user having to be an expert in data mining or the subject area. It can find categories of data and provide information on the characteristics of those groupings.
