litLIB example

In the Insert function dialog you need to pick a category and within the category a function. The basic help message is displayed with parameter help. It is recommended to use the Help on this function button to show a web page with more information about the command.

WordsMid example

In the example below the WordsMid function is selects words from a string. I have typed a text as the first parameter (Text) but you can also point to a cell (e.g. A1) of course. The StartWord parameter indicated from which word we need to start and the Count parameter indicates how many words we would like to extract.

After a function was selected the regular Excel function panel will display. Just complete the parameters and the result will show in Excel.
