# NORMSDIST

NORMSDIST(x)

Returns the probability distribution function for a standard normal distribution (no cumulative).

 x The number from the distribution.

 REMARKS
 * NORM.S.DIST was added in Excel 2010 to replace this function and include an option for cumulative probability.* The standard normal distribution is a [[continuous distribution]]* Returns the probability given a z-value.* If "x" is not numeric, then #VALUE! is returned.* mean 0, standard deviation 1* For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com* For the Google documentation refer to support.google.com
