Returns the inverse of the standard normal cumulative distribution. The distribution has a mean of zero and a standard deviation of one.
The NORM.S.INV function syntax has the following arguments:
Probability Required. A probability corresponding to the normal distribution.
If probability is nonnumeric, NORMS.INV returns the #VALUE! error value.
If probability <= 0 or if probability >= 1, NORMS.INV returns the #NUM! error value.
Given a value for probability, NORM.S.INV seeks that value z such that NORM.S.DIST(z,TRUE) = probability. Thus, precision of NORM.S.INV depends on precision of NORM.S.DIST. NORM.S.INV uses an iterative search technique.
