WorksheetFunction.Prob Method

Office 2007
Returns the probability that values in a range are between two limits. If upper_limit is not supplied, returns the probability that values in x_range are equal to lower_limit.

Syntax

expression.Prob(Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, Arg4)

expression   A variable that represents a WorksheetFunction object.

Parameters

NameRequired/OptionalData TypeDescription
Arg1RequiredVariantX_range - the range of numeric values of x with which there are associated probabilities.
Arg2RequiredVariantProb_range - a set of probabilities associated with values in x_range.
Arg3RequiredDoubleLower_limit - the lower bound on the value for which you want a probability.
Arg4OptionalVariantUpper_limit - the optional upper bound on the value for which you want a probability.

Return Value
Double

Remarks

  • If any value in prob_range ≤ 0 or if any value in prob_range > 1, PROB returns the #NUM! error value.
  • If the sum of the values in prob_range ¹ 1, PROB returns the #NUM! error value.
  • If upper_limit is omitted, PROB returns the probability of being equal to lower_limit.
  • If x_range and prob_range contain a different number of data points, PROB returns the #N/A error value.
