Compatibility Functions

This document briefly describes compatibility functions implemented in the Spreadsheet.

Compatibility functions are functions that were replaced with new functions in Microsoft Excel versions 2010 and higher. These functions, however, are still available for use in documents created with earlier versions of Excel. Our spreadsheet correctly interprets and evaluates them.

Consider using the new, more precise functions instead of the functions listed in this document.

Name Description Syntax
BETADIST Returns the beta cumulative distribution function. BETADIST(x,alpha,beta,[A],[B])
BETAINV Returns the inverse of the cumulative beta probability density function for a specified beta distribution. BETAINV(probability,alpha,beta,A,B)
