Definition. This function returns the natural logarithm of the gamma function (Γ(x)) calculated to 15 places.


  • x (required). The value for which you want to calculate GAMMALN.PRECISE()


If x isn’t a numeric expression, the GAMMALN.PRECISE() function returns the #VALUE! error. If x is less than or equal to 0, the function returns the #NUM! error. The number e raised to the GAMMALN.PRECISE(i) power, where i is an integer, returns the same result as (i – 1).
