Recursion in Google Sheets is now possible with the introduction of Named functions, LAMBDA functions, and LET functions. In this post, we’ll explore the concept of recursion and look at how to implement recursion in Google Sheets.
Coming hot on the heels of last year’s batch of new lambda functions, Google recently announced another group of new analytical functions for Sheets.
Included in this new batch are the long-awaited LET function, 8 new array manipulation functions, a new statistical function, and a new datetime function.
Let’s begin with a look at the new array functions. The LET function is at the end of the post.
- TOROW Function
- TOCOL Function
- CHOOSEROWS Function
- CHOOSECOLS Function
- WRAPROWS Function
- WRAPCOLS Function
- VSTACK Function
- HSTACK Function
- MARGINOFERROR Function
- EPOCHTODATE Function
- LET Function
Arrays in Google Sheets are collections of data, consisting of rows and columns. You can use arrays in formulas in the same way that you use regular A1-type ranges.
You construct arrays in Google Sheets with curly brackets:
They’re also known as ARRAY LITERALS.
