    Inverse logarithms (2003/SP1)

    Hi,

    Is there any way to calculate an inverse log using Excel, either through formulas or through VB?

    Thanks,

    Hi kiwi44,

    An inverse logarithm (usually shown as log-1 or 10x for base 10 logarithms) is usually calculated by raising 10 to the power of your exponent. In Excel, you use the exponentiation operator "^" for this. So, to find the inverse logarithm of 3.5, base 10, you'd use: =10^3.5.

    Cheers
