Before we go to the complete list, we will discuss a bit about the details of an excel formula. From the discussion, you should understand its definition, functions, and how to add a formula to your cell generally.

## What is an Excel Formula?

An excel formula is a feature excel provides to help us in processing our data into our desired outputs. Excel has many formula variations and each of them has a unique function that can perform a specific task for us.

## The Benefits of Using Excel Formulas

There are many benefits we will get if we can use formulas optimally in excel. Each formula has its own unique benefit related to data processing. However, generally, here are the main functions of formulas in excel.
• Get our desired outputs fast and accurately from the data that we have
• Create the materials we need for further data processing
• Automate our data processing if the data we work with in excel is dynamic

Those benefits are crucial if we want to process our data productively in excel. Therefore, try to master as many formulas as possible if you often do your work in excel!

## How to Add a Formula in Excel

When you want to write a formula in excel, you have to type an equal symbol ( = ) before you write it. The symbol will inform excel that you want to write some kind of formula in your cell.

After the equal symbol, you should write the name of the formula you want to use. Next, give the inputs you need to use the formula inside bracket signs. Each formula needs different kinds of inputs to produce the result that you want from it.

For example, here is a SUM formula that we write to sum numbers in a cell range. Notice that the formula writing follows the pattern we discussed earlier. Another way to add a formula in excel is by using the Insert Functions menu in the Formulas tab. You can see the menu location in the screenshot below. You can click the Insert Functions button and choose the formula you want to use on its dialog box. Alternatively, you can also click the dropdown of the formula type you want to use in the Formulas tab. Then, just choose the formula from the list that shows up.

If you insert your formula using the Insert Functions menu, there will be formula writing helpers from excel you can use. Insert the inputs that the formula needs to the text boxes excel gives and excel will write the formula for you.
