NORMSINV

Returns the value of the inverse standard normal distribution function for a specified value.

Sample Usage

NORMSINV(.75)

NORMSINV(A2)

Syntax

NORMSINV(x)

  • x - The input to the inverse standard normal distribution function.

Notes

  • The "standard" normal distribution function is the normal distribution function with mean of 0 and variance (and therefore standard deviation) of 1.
  • x must be greater than 0 and less than 1 or a #NUM! error will occur.
