Compatibility functions

 Important   All of these functions have been replaced with new functions that may provide improved accuracy and whose names better reflect their usage. Although these functions are still available for backward compatibility, you should consider using the new functions from now on, because these functions may not be available in future versions of Excel.

For more information about the new functions, see Statistical functions.
