## Excel NORMSDIST Function

The NORMSDIST calculates and returns the standard normal cumulative distribution function or probability density function of a value for an arithmetic mean of 0 and standard deviation of 1.

Note: NORMSDIST has been replaced with NORM.S.DIST. Although NORMSDIST is still available in current versions of Excel, you should consider using the new function from now on, because NORMSDIST may not be available in Excel’s future versions. #### Syntax

=NORMSDIST(z, cumulative)

#### Arguments

• z (required): The value for which to calculate the distribution.

#### Return Value

The NORMSDIST function returns a numeric value.

#### Function Notes

• The #VALUE! error occurs if z is nonnumeric.
• To calculate the probability density function at z, use the NORM.S.DIST function.

#### Example

Suppose that you have a list of z values, to calculate the cumulative distribution function at the values, please copy or enter the formula below in top cell (cell C3), press Enter to get the first result, and then drag the fill handle of the result cell down to apply the formula to the below cells:
