# How to use FISHERINV Function in Excel

The FISHERINV function returns the inverse of the Fisher transformation. Use this transformation when analyzing correlations between ranges or arrays of data. If y = FISHER(x), then FISHERINV(y) = x.

Syntax:= FISHERINV(y)

The FISHERINV function syntax has the following arguments:

• Y    Required. The value for which you want to perform the inverse of the transformation.

Example: Let’s look at some Excel FISHERINV function examples and explore how to use the FISHERINV function as a worksheet function in Microsoft Excel: Syntax:  =FISHERINV(A2)

Result: 0.749999967 Based on the Excel spreadsheet above, the following FISHERINV examples would return:

Syntax: =FISHERINV(A3)
Result: 0.84828364

Syntax: =FISHERINV(A4)
Result: 0.578363413

Syntax: =FISHERINV(A5)
Result: -0.998177898

Syntax: =FISHERINV(A6)
Result: 0.635148952

Syntax: =FISHERINV(A7)
Result: 0.852477704

Note:

• If y is nonnumeric, FISHERINV returns the #VALUE! error value.
• The equation for the inverse of the Fisher transformation is: READ:  How to use FORECAST.LINEAR Function in Excel
