# NORMSINV

NORMSINV(probability)

Returns the inverse of the probability distribution function for a standard normal distribution.

 probability The probability associated with the distribution.

 REMARKS
 * NORM.S.INV was added in Excel 2010 to replace this function.* The standard normal distribution is a [[continuous distribution]]* Returns the z-value for given probabilities.* If "probability" < 0 then #NUM! is returned.* If "probability" > 1, then #NUM! is returned.* If "probability" is not numeric, then #VALUE! is returned.* This function uses an iterative technique for calculating the function.* This function iterates until the result is accurate to within ± 3x10^-7.* If this function does not converge after 100 iterations, then #N/A 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
