The VARPA function estimates the variance based on a total population of numbers, text or logical values (TRUE or FALSE).
Return Type: Numeric
Syntax: VARPA(value1, value2,...)
In the above syntax, parameters in bold are required.
Parameters for which you want to find the variance. These parameters can be entered as hard-coded values, for example, 2, or field references, for example, [field name]. Referenced fields can reside within the application or within Sub-Form, Cross-Reference, or Related Records fields. If logical values (TRUE or FALSE) are used, they are evaluated as 1 and 0, respectively.
Note: This function assumes the numbers represent the entire population. If your data set represents a sample population, you must compute the variance using VARA.
VARPA([Offshore Facilities],[Risk Rating],[Customer Data]))
where the value of the Offshore Facilities field is "True", the value of the Risk Rating field is "10", and the value of the Customer Data field is "False".
