Some months ago, Microsoft said that an Excel app will be released for iPhone and Android users which could be used to take a picture of a table and automatically convert it into a spreadsheet. Later in march the app was then released but it was for android users only excluding iOS devices.
 After rolling out the feature for Android Smartphones in March, Microsoft has now finally added the feature to the Excel’s iOS app as well.
The spreadsheet conversion tool sends the image to Excel's online image-recognition engine to process and convert the words and numbers into a table. During the import, Excel gives you a chance to fix anything before it's converted.

·         Open the Excel app; tap the new button at the top of the app to create a new file. You can choose to create a blank workbook or use one of the templates that come with the app.
·         At the bottom of the app, tap the Data from Picture button (it's the 3x3 grid with a camera).
·         Position the red rectangle around the data you want to capture, and then tap the round Capture button.
·         If you are okay with the captured image, tap the red check button to convert the data.
·         In a preview of the captured data, tap a red-highlighted cell and then tap Edit to enter missing information.
·         Tap done after each change.
·         You can also tap unhighlighted cells to make corrections or changes.
·         Once you are satisfied with the data, tap Insert at the top to place the data in your workbook.

The Insert Data from Picture tool for Android and iOS can work with 21 languages, including French, German and Spanish, with more languages to come, Microsoft said.
