Chapter 3 Using Excel Functions
Formulas are tough enough to enter correctly into an
Excel worksheet, which is why Excel provides built-in formulas called
functions that you can use to quickly enter common formulas. Functions
are ready-made formulas that perform a series of operations on a specified
range of cells. For example, suppose you want to calculate the sum of the
values in the range C5:C9, as shown in Figure 3-1.
A quick way to total a range of cells
is to use the SUM function.
