Microsoft Excel is a software program used to develop, create and organize data using the spreadsheet or worksheet interface. Excel users and businesses often use it to deal with calculating, organizing, graphing and formatting data.

Microsoft Excel has basic features, which are used for organizing data and for data management. Excel is also used for displaying data in the form of histograms, tables, pivot tables, charts and line graphs. Visual basic or applications is one of the most powerful aspects Excel. It allows Excel users to create varieties of intricate automated methods.

Microsoft Excel allows the user, or in this case, the Excel consultant, to use the tools for graphing, perform all basic calculations, creating pivot tables and much more. Excel consultants and users are given options to directly code through the visual basic editor, a powerful feature. Microsoft Excel consultants should learn all the functions and features and formulas available in Microsoft Excel, and this free Excel help article covers just one.

TANH Function:

Microsoft Excel consultants must study how to formulate the different kinds of formulas in various Excel situations and functions. TANH function is widely used as mathematical functions, which involves trigonometric process. However, it returns the hyperbolic tangent of the given number. The syntax for TANH function is “TANH (number)”. “Number” considered any true number.


= TANH (number)

Return Value

Return the single- or the double-precision hyperbolic tangent.
The synopsis of TANH function is “TANH(x)” and the value argument is “x: number”. It is also Excel compatible.

  • The “number” is considered as the angle to radians
  • Multiply the argument by PI ()/180 converting it into radians, if it is in degrees.
  • If the number isn’t numeric, then the returned value is “#VALUE!”.
  • Multiply their result through 180/PI (), if the user want it to be in degrees.
  • However, the user can use the Excel’s Degree function if you wish to convert the argument value to degrees which in the form of radians.

TANH function aims to find the number tangents simplify the process by saving your time.


  1. In a cell, enter the full number within the spreadsheet. For instance, enter four into the B1 cell.
  2. Go to your desired cell placing the tangent to appear then type the following formula like “=TANH (A1)”.
  3. Click on the Excel spreadsheet anywhere. The tangent of number four appears in the cell wherein the user typed the formula resulted to 0.9915450. In changing the cell number of your needed tangent, the user has to alter the formula in step 2 reflecting the definition of new cell.
  4. Key in the TANH formula in the cell you wish to display the tangents. The user can type the formula then fill the remaining cells through hitting the lower-left corner hand of border. Then you have to drag the cursor while the cell ranges outlined. The user must have to release the mouse to auto-fill the cells with its correct formulas.
