The Excel Database functions work with an Excel Database. This typically takes the form of a large table of Data, where each row in the table stores an individual record. Each column in the Worksheet table stores a different field for each record.
The Database functions perform basic operations, such as Sum, Average, Count, etc., and additionally use criteria arguments, that allow you to perform the calculation only for a specified subset of the records in your Database. Other records in the Database are ignored.
