    Where can I get information on what the symbols mean in formulas. I am VERY new at this, and have much to learn from what I've read so far.

    Hi Valerie,

    If you go to Help and in the Index tab search for operator, you will get a description of the the different operators you can use in your formulas, + = Addition, * = multiplication etc.

    Many formulas also contain functions, so you might like to search on that as well. Or perhaps, if you go to Insert, Function, and look through all the functions available to you with a brief description. Many of these functions may not be relevant to you so don't worry if you cannot understand some of them.

    You might also get some help from <A target="_blank" HREF=http://keptin.net/virtualhelpdesk/excel/>Virtual Helpdesk</A>

    good luck

    In addition to what Andrew said, you can always ask about anything you don't understand here.
