Locating the appropriate function within the library of functions is easy with the integrated, context sensitive, searching tool. Each function is categorized and searching may be performed within a category or throughout the entire library. Please note this window is designed to look like the built in Insert Function window within Excel, but provides enhanced searching functionality within the Derivicom function library and the Help on this function link launches the correct documentation.
