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

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.

Function SUMIF
Hi guys It's there any way I can us the function SUMIF with multiple criteria or conditions on two different columns. I'll appreciate your help. Hi no you can't use SUMIF with more than one criteria. Use SUMPRODUCT instead e.g. the following will sum column C based on the criteria in col. A and col.

Report Builder (2005, v1.0) Chart Error in RS2008
We have recently moved reports from a RS 2005 server to a new RS 2008 server and we are having an issue with charts using a model based on an AS cube(2005 enterprise). We are now getting the following error on several reports: Value was either too large or too small for a Decimal. The bar chart has the following: - Units for the value fields - Crew for the series fields - Date for the category fields. What I think is happening is that the for each category (Date) not every series field (crew) has data, because different crews work different days and any given...

error bars in VBA excel 2007 macro

Hi, You will need to change your code for xl2007. If the Amount is fixed, in your case to the value 4, then you will need to use the correct Type argument rather than custom. If it is custom then you will need an array of values. And you will need both plus and minus values even if the minus valu...

Unreachable hosts error
This is very strange.

I'm not sure what the deal is. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time, --mike A lot of possibilities. But, the fact that you can ping a server does not mean that an smtp-service is up and running on that server nor that it allows you to connect to it. Can you establish a telne...

is there a function that does this?
Is there a function that, when given a parameter returns 0 if the parameter is negative and returns the parameter when it is positive? Here is the scenario in which I would use such a function.

When a student has, say, 3 credits in english where 5 are required, I could simply subtract credits earned from credits needed. Unfortunately, when a student has, say, 5.5 credits in english, that formula returns -.5 credits. What I would like is for it to return 0 credits needed since they have met (or excee...
