Compatibility Functions

This document briefly describes compatibility functions implemented in the XtraSpreadsheet.

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.




BETADISTReturns the beta cumulative distribution function.BETADIST(x,alpha,beta,[A],[B])
