Smart Lookup in Excel
Posted By: Ryan Richardson - 4/20/2021 12:00:00 AM


If you find yourself spending lots of time in spreadsheets, Excel is probably your ‘go to’ application. There’s not much you can’t do with Excel, but with such a long list of powerful features, it can be difficult to keep track of all of them. 

One feature that can be particularly useful, is called Smart Lookup. If you need to research something in a particular cell, simply right click and select Smart Lookup. 

Excel will then launch a search engine powered by Bing right there in the app, allowing you to search the web for what’s in the cell. You can look up virtually anything, from definitions and Wikipedia entries, to financial data and statistics. 

Smart Lookup is constantly updating and improving via AI, improving its ability to give you the most relevant information over time.
