In this video, staff author Jess Stratton shows users how to work with functions and formulas, and how to enter them into cells.
- [Instructor] Formulas and functions are at the heart…of what makes Excel so powerful.…Formulas and functions allow you to transform data…and preform complex calculations on that data.…Whether it's an operation on text or a number or a date.…To enter a formula from scratch, tap into the cell,…and start with an equal sign,…just like you do in the desktop version of Excel.…You can start typing your function if you know it,…or you can also tap the fx button directly…to the left of the equal sign…and look up the functions that are already there…in Excel for iPad.…
