Excel has dozens of useful functions, and each of them has its own, unique set of arguments. You

The best way to insert a function is to use the Insert Function dialog box. Display this dialog box
by using any of these methods:
h Click the Insert Function button, located in the Formulas
Function Library group.
h Click the fx button to the left of the Formula bar.
h Press Shift+F3.
If you don’t know the name of the function you need, you can search for it by entering some text
in the Search for a Function field and clicking the Go button (see Figure 80-1). After you identify
the function, click OK, and you see the Function Arguments dialog box, which guides you
through the function’s arguments, as shown in Figure 80-2.
Figure 80-1: Use the Insert Function dialog box to help find the function you need.
By the way, if you’re entering a function manually (without the assistance of the Insert Function
dialog box), you can press Ctrl+A to display the Function Arguments dialog box. This key
combination works only if you haven’t yet entered any arguments for the function.
