The inverse error function (erfinv)


I need to use the inverse error function

erf(x)=0.8  <=>  x=inverf(0.8)   <=>   x=0,90469

Currently i am using the goal seeker, but i know that matlab has a erfinv function - does excell have one? if not - does anybody know about som java-coding that can do it

Best regard

inverf(p) = SQRT(GAMMAINV(p,0.5,1))
inverfc(p) = -NormSInv(p/2)/Sqrt(2)

Mathemetically exact, but not necessarily numerically good in versions 
prior to 2003.

inverse of ShrinkToFit
Is there a property for the Range object that does the opposite of ShrinkToFit? I mean, something like CellExpandsToFit, i.e. the cell size / row width / column width is adjusted automatically so that the whole text in it will be visible. Is there any other ways to accomplish the same effect? E.g. iterate over all the columns, determine if the texts fit the cells everywhere and if not, set it to wider. For that I should be able to determine if the whole text is visible in a cell. Thx Have a look at autofit -- Don Guillett SalesAid Software "Agoston Bejo" <gu...

Is there a function to set the Code page of my program dynamically?
Hi, There are several places in my program that I need to change between CString and BSTR. (Maybe the rich edit controls also change between char and unicode, I am not sure.) I am using USES_CONVERSION; W2A A2W I found the same program worked under some languages, didn't under others. Sometimes it worked in Edit control, but not in Rich Edit control. I have added #define _CONVERSION_USES_THREAD_LOCALE in the stdafx.h but found it not much help. I trace into the mfc codes and found it called WideCharToMultiByte() at last. Is there a function so that I can set Code page (ac...
