Get Your Numbers Right


Insert Function Dialog

On xlPrecision editions that facilitate using Excel's Insert Function Dialog (the 1,500 SD and higher editions, and the Free Edition), you can use it to insert xlPrecision functions more conveniently than typing them in directly.

You can also use the Function Arguments dialog to quickly modify existing xlPrecision formulas.



Although this is more convenient than entering functions manually, especially with many arguments, it can be slow because Excel recalculates the function every time a digit or character is entered. To speed up that process, enter "0" for all numeric operands (such as num and rt for xlpROOT), so that the function does not take long to calculate. Then, when done with the dialog, manually change the numeric operands to the desired numbers directly in the worksheet.
