Release 2016-08-06 Formula Argument Declaration confusion
The release notes says:
Formula Argument Declaration
Calculations can now run faster with the new logic for identifying a range. Rather than using =if(a1:a3) to specify a range in your formula, your functions will need to identify each cell, =if(a1, a2, a3), separately to be able to run the argument.
Using the IF() function does not make sense as a valid argument, since the commas could be taken as argument separators.
Can you provide a useful example?
Also, the text reads "will need to"
Testing reveals this is likely intended to say something like:
Calculations WILL/CAN now run faster with the new logic for identifying a range. Rather than using BETTER EXAMPLE to specify a range in your formula, your functions CAN identify each cell, BETTER EXAMPLE, separately to be able to run the argument WITH FASTER PROCESSING.
