Here is the complete Excel Functions list, including lookup, logical, date and time, text, information, math functions with examples.

**Each function refers to an example.**

## What is an Excel function?

Let’s see the definition of the Excel function.

**Excel Functions are built-in presets, so there are hard-coded formulas** in Excel. With its help, you can avoid manual data entry, and it has small, user-friendly names. Type an equal sign (=) in the **formula bar** or the **cell** to enter a function you want to use. After that, enter the function’s name and the **arguments**.

## Excel Function List

### Logical

The functions below use **logical tests** and **logical operators** to evaluate a formula. Learn more about **Boolean expressions**.

Function | How it works |
---|---|
