View and insert data from a data type
Data types hold lots of information that you can view or add to your workbook at any time. After you convert to a data type, you can open cards that preview the info you can add to your workbook.
Select the data type icon in the cell to open the data card.
Important: We recommend making sure your data types are in a table so Excel can help fill columns of data for you.
Scroll through the card to view the fields and values you can work with.
Hover over any value that you want to insert and select the Insert Data button. Excel will automatically insert data for the same field for other data types in the column of a table.
Tip: If you select a cell in the table with data types, the Add Column button appears and you can quickly select fields to add data without opening a card.
If you ever need to get the most up-to-date data for your data types, go to Data > Refresh All.
