Returns the smallest value for which the cumulative binomial distribution is greater than or equal to a criterion value.

Sample Usage



The BINOM.INV function syntax has the following arguments:

  • Trials     Required. The number of Bernoulli trials.

  • Probability_s     Required. The probability of a success on each trial.

  • Alpha     Required. The criterion value.


  • If any argument is nonnumeric, BINOM.INV returns the #VALUE! error value.

  • If trials is not an integer, it is truncated.

  • If trials < 0, BINOM.INV returns the #NUM! error value.

  • If probability_s is < 0 or probability_s > 1, BINOM.INV returns the #NUM! error value.

  • If alpha < 0 or alpha > 1, BINOM.INV returns the #NUM! error value.
