* The standard deviation is a measure of how [[Dispersed]] the values are from the mean and is the square root of the variance.
* This function assumes that the arguments represent a sample from the population (as opposed to the entire population).
* Text and logical values such as True and False are ignored.
* You can have a maximum of 255 arguments
* If you do not want to count any arguments that are text, logical values or errors you can use the VARA function.
* You can use the VAR.P function to return the variance based on an entire population.
