Formula Checking
Similar to the spell checker, Excel has a formula checker that checks formulas in a worksheet
for rule violations. You invoke the formula checker by clicking the Error Checking command
on the Tools menu. Each time Excel encounters a cell with a formula that violates one of
its rules, it displays a dialog box containing information about the formula and a suggestion
on how to fi x the formula. Table 4–4 lists Excel’s error checking rules. You can choose
which rules you want Excel to use by enabling and disabling them in the Formulas area in
the Excel Options dialog box shown in Figure 4–64 on page EX 320.
