Argument

Required?

Description

array1 
Required 
The first cell range of integers. 
array2 
Required 
The second cell range of integers. 
• The arguments must either be numbers or be names, arrays, or references that contain numbers. 
• If an array or reference argument contains text, logical values, or empty cells, those values are ignored; however, cells with the value zero are included. 
• If array1 and array2 have different numbers of data points, COVARIANCE.S returns the #N/A error value. 
• If either array1 or array2 is empty, COVARIANCE.S returns the #DIV/0! error value.
