All complex number functions accept "i" and "j" for suffix, but neither "I" nor "J". Using uppercase generates an error. All functions that accept two or more complex numbers require that all suffixes match.
  • If Arg1 is nonnumeric, Complex generates an error.
  • If Arg2 is nonnumeric, Complex generates an error.
  • If Arg3 is neither "i" nor "j", Complex generates an error.
