Excel: OR() Function Description Has Wrong Procedure for Array

Last reviewed: September 12, 1996
Article ID: Q100657

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Excel for Windows, versions 4.0, 4.0a, 5.0
  • Microsoft Excel for the Macintosh, versions 4.0, 5.0

SUMMARY

Page 311 of the "Function Reference" version 4.0 incorrectly describes the procedure for entering an array formula. The manual states the following:

   To enter the OR formula as an array, press CTRL+SHIFT (in Microsoft
   Excel for Windows) or COMMAND+SHIFT (in Microsoft Excel for the
   Macintosh).

This information is also incorrect in online Help.

The correct key combinations to use to enter an array formula are:

    CONTROL+SHIFT+ENTER in Microsoft Excel for Windows
    COMMAND+ENTER in Microsoft Excel for the Macintosh
