NxHistogram - Frequency Distribution (Histogram)

Calculates the histogram or cumulative histogram function for a given bin.

 

Syntax

NxHistogram(X, k, index, Ret_type)

X is the input data series (one/two dimensional array of cells (e.g. rows or columns)).

k is the input number of bins for the histogram.

index is the bin index or order; e.g. 1= 1st bin (default), 2=2nd bin,..., N.

Ret_type is a switch to select the return output (0= histogram, 1= cumulative histogram (default)).

Order Description
0 histogram
1 cumulative histogram (default)
 

Remarks

  1. The input data series may include missing values (e.g. #N/A, #VALUE!, #NUM!, empty cell), but they will not be included in the calculations.
