# NORM.S.INV function: Description, Usage, Syntax, Examples and Explanation

## What is NORM.S.INV function in Excel?

## Syntax of NORM.S.INV function

NORM.S.INV(probability)

The NORM.S.INV function syntax has the following arguments:

**Probability:**A probability corresponding to the normal distribution.

## NORM.S.INV formula explanation

- If probability is nonnumeric, NORMS.INV returns the #VALUE! error value.
- If probability <= 0 or if probability >= 1, NORMS.INV returns the #NUM! error value.

Given a value for probability, NORM.S.INV seeks that value z such that NORM.S.DIST(z,TRUE) = probability. Thus, precision of NORM.S.INV depends on precision of NORM.S.DIST. NORM.S.INV uses an iterative search technique.
