Excel functions (by category)

Important   The calculated results of formulas and some Excel worksheet functions may differ slightly between a Windows PC using x86 or x86-64 architecture and a Windows RT PC using ARM architecture. Learn more about the differences.

Worksheet functions are categorized by their functionality. If you know the category of the function that you are looking for, you can click that category.

Compatibility functions

Important   All of these functions have been replaced with new functions that may provide improved accuracy and whose names better reflect their usage. Although these functions are still available for backward compatibility, you should consider using the new functions from now on, because these functions may not be available in future versions of Excel.
