Changelog

Excel

LAMBDA

Do you make use of repeated calculations you wish you could define once and reuse? Have you ever looked for a function, but couldn’t find one that fits your specific needs? Or, maybe, you’ve run into this type of issue before and investigated creating VBA User Defined Functions (UDF) or JavaScript custom functions, only to discover that you need to learn a new language.

All that changes today with the release of the LAMBDA function.
