Returns 1 if number ≥ step; returns 0 (zero) otherwise. Use this function to filter a set of values. For example, by summing several GESTEP functions you calculate the count of values that exceed a threshold.


= GESTEP(number, [step])

The GESTEP function syntax has the following arguments:

  • Number : Required. The value to test against step.

  • Step: (Optional) The threshold value. If you omit a value for step, GESTEP uses the default value as zero.
