# binning data in excel

Data binning is the another name of data discretization, data categorization, data bucketing, or data quantization. Data binning is a data mining methodology to simplify a column of data, by reducing the number of possible values into small groups or categories.

If you want to study data binning in details, then you can read the article mentioned below in the reference link. Otherwise, you can continue reading of data binning in excel.
