### Syntax

=GESTEP(number,[step])

#### Arguments

Argument Description
number The value to test against step
[step] Optional. The threshold value

 • If [step] is omitted, GESTEP uses the default value zero (0)

#### Examples

A B C
1 Formula Result Notes
2 =GESTEP(5,4) 1 Checks whether 5 is greater than or equal to the [step] value 4
3 =GESTEP(4,4) 1 Checks whether 4 is greater than or equal to the [step] value 4
4 =GESTEP(-4,-5) 1 Checks whether -4 is greater than or equal to the [step] value -5
5 =GESTEP(-0.05) 0 Checks whether -0.05 is greater than or equal to the default [step] value 0

Usage note: Use this function to filter a set of values. For example, by summing several GESTEP functions you calculate the count of values that exceed a threshold.
