Hi all.  Y’know, in Excel 365 for iOS, the descriptions of a function and its parameters are EXTREMELY cryptic and somewhat absent.  Oh yes, they’ll show you the command, command structure, and names of its parameters, but, it will in no way explain each parameter nor are examples given for the command/function.  It feels as if Microsoft expects its users to know everything about its function library.  This is why I use Numbers for iOS more than Excel 365 for iOS.

 

So, is there an online manual or Kindle/iBooks that is a complete manual of functions (250, 500, 750 page or however many pages a full function/command list with examples and descriptions) available somewhere for Microsoft Excel 365 for iOS?

 

Thank you

@Matt Agajanian The Excel functions in Excel for iOS are the same as for Windows or Mac, so you can pick up any book about Excel functions and they will apply to the phone.

 

Here is a list of Excel functions published by Microsoft. Each function links to its own help article.
